I just had mine done last March the day after I delivered Cass. They let me stay awake with a spinal so I didn't have to be put completely out but they refused to let me watch the procedure. I'm happy with the tubal.
My scar is currently about an inch and a half long, just below my navel. No unusual side effects yet. It was done with Filshie Clips, destroying the smallest portion of tube, only a few millimeters. I got my post-operative report the other day and it was kind of neat to read.
