You’ll begin the process with a consultation, where you’ll discuss the procedure along with your medical history. The consultant will explain how they intend to progress with the procedure, and you’ll be given a date to return.
When that day comes, simply head to the hospital and the team will take it from there. You’ll be shown to your private room and any family members to the waiting area. Once you’re given a general anaesthetic, the operation should take a few hours at most, and the nurses will be on hand to provide excellent care afterwards.
