Diabetes, miscarriage and general anasthetic

I'm not sure where to post this. I have had a miscarriage at 11 weeks and am type 1 diabetic. I have waited 4 weeks for it to come out naturally but it hasn't. They first suggested that the procedure to remove it could be done under local anasthetic but when I mentioned that not eating for 6 hours in the day would require careful control by me and small injections they refused to allow me to do this and insisted I had to have it done under general anasthetic.

Has anyone else had this experience at UCH and how did you convince them to allow it under local? I really don't want a general anasthetic as frankly I've found that "trained" people have no idea about diabetics either and have had some really nasty experiences with this.

Sorry I can't help but just wanted to bump this up so hopefully someone will see it and get back to you...

Really sorry to hear about your m/c, i had one at 8 wks in march so kind of know how you're feeling as I found out at an early scan and had to wait to miscarry which fortunately I did 2wks later. Hope all works out ok for you xxx
