Dilatation and curettage (D&C)

What can I expect?

  • After the operation, you will go to the recovery room, where you will be carefully watched until the anaesthetic medications have worn off. 
  • Even though you may feel fully awake, the effects of anaesthetic may continue for a few hours or as long as a day.
