For patients anxious about treatment, we can provide intravenous sedation. This is a provided with a powerful agent which removes anxiety and gives a comfortable, relaxed sensation.
You will remain conscious throughout the procedure and will be vaguely aware of what is happening. However, you will be able to remember very little afterwards. You will need to be accompanied by a third party to the appointment, and escorted home again afterwards. You cannot drive, operate machinery or sign documents for 24 hours. More information will be given to you when you attend for the assessment appointment.
