I've been done. I had a laparoscopic sterilisation.

Went in at 7am, I was first on the list so was done very quickly.
Was put under GA, woke up feeling dopey a little while later and said some stupid stuff. After an hour they phoned dh to come and get me.

Recovery was fine, I rested for a few days and after that I could get about if I took it slowly.
I was unlucky and got a massive infection though and nearly had to be hospitalised, which dragged out the recovery for a few weeks.

Had no problems with it since then.
