Thank you so much for that CVCMAN. I've been so concerned and haven't spoken to anyone about my fear, putting on a brave face for my family and pretending I'm fine about it. Your post has eased my mind somewhat. I suppose the waiting for the hospital appointment hasn't helped. I would have preferred it if the Consultant had said he would do it there and then before I had time to think.
Thanks again. I'll post when I get the date for the procedure and let you know how I fared after it's done.
Bless you.
