Im having the procedure done tomorrow after postponing 4 times in the past year due to being scared of both procedure and downtime. I am so scared to have the procedure done tomorrow. What I don't understand is why it's being done (whatever method they r doing since Im not sure which doc in the clinic is doing it) at a clinic vs a hospital... Why r some people given a general and others only a shot to freeze the area. Wondering if I should buy Emla to try to knumb the area first... I'm petrified for tomorrow and hope it goes better than I hope it would and that I'm not in too much pain. I hope this embarrassing skin tag will be gone forever.
