I have a mole removal procedure tomorrow morning which will involve the use of local anaesthetic. Like a lot of people, I am needle phobic and have never had an injection alone yet as I always ask people to come in with me as I am so terrified of them and need somebody to take my mind off it (stupid for a woman in her mid twenties, I know). However, tomorrow there is nobody to come in with me. Do you think the staff at the doctors surgery will be able to allow me to use my IPod music to distract me from the needle? My boyfriend seems to think they might be a bit funny about contamination of the equipment but I can't see why they would as it's not like it's an Intensive Care Unit or anything. Has anyone else done something like this before and been allowed to do it?
