Hi - I just had this done on Wednesday along with Essure (essure.com, permanent birth control.) In terms of recovery, it's been a BREEZE! I was under general anesthesia, so that was probably the hardest part, just coming out of that fog. I've had very mild cramping, wayyyy less than an average period, and I think that's more due to the essure. I've had almost no discharge, only about 2 drops of blood. It's been surprisingly easy, thankfully.Are you going to be under general? The stuff I've read has basically said that women who didn't get general wish they had - for both essure and/or ablation. My doctor didn't even give me a choice, but I'd have chosen it anyway! I'm lbkimballATgmail.com (change the AT for @) if you want to ask any further questions.
