NovaSure ablation anyone?

Has anyone had NovaSure endometiral ablation under a GA?
My consultant has advised this and I'm fine about the actual procedure I'm just worried about the after affects and of how I'll feel after the GA.
any advice much appreciated

I had it done at the end of March (had a few years of very heaving bleeding, was anaemic, etc). The op was very quick and I was out of hospital the same day. After the op I had crampy pains for about a week, and I felt very weepy on the second and third day afterwards, which I think was due to the GA. I had the op on a Monday and went back to work the following Monday (could probably have gone back sooner but I had a few days of leave planned anyway).

After the op I had on and off discharge/bleeding for the first few months. Then one huge period at the end of May, and since then nothing much - I still get mild PMT when my period is due, and some spotting but a tiny amount - hopefully things will continue this way. I'm so pleased I had it done. Good luck.
