12 months of interest-free credit. I thought, why not take advantage of that?

I decided to go with the private option because the waiting list was incredibly long. I had previously met Miss Tipples – who had also performed on my mother. Even though that procedure had been uncomfortable for her, I decided to “bite the bullet” and go through with it. I was booked for anterior only,  but Miss Tipples , whilst I was under the anaesthetic, managed to do posterior as well. The waiting list for the posterior repair was also quite long, so I opted to have it done while under anaesthetic.

What attracted me to use Chrysalis Finance was when I went online to look at Nuffield’s offerings. It was a no-brainer for me when I saw the option for 12 months of interest-free credit. I thought, why not take advantage of that? It made going private more affordable and saved me from waiting longer. At my age, every moment of life is precious.

I had never heard of the option to pay monthly before; I just assumed you had to pay upfront. While I could have dipped into my savings to cover the cost, the appeal of 0% financing was too great to pass up. It was also a relief to know that I wouldn’t be hit with a large lump-sum payment all at once.

The application for the loan was simple; I completed it online, and it was approved right away. Since I wasn’t in the best health while waiting for the operation, it was reassuring to have someone on the other end of the phone taking care of everything. I called a few times with concerns, but they assured me that everything was in good hands.

Nuffield Health was absolutely great from start to finish. I didn’t have to wait long at all; it was only a total of two weeks. The pre-op preparations went smoothly. I had a bad experience with anaesthetic in the past, which left me nauseous and sick. This time, I had no problems at all, and it was the best anaesthetic experience I’ve ever had. I felt fine. While I could have gone home the same day, it was a major operation, so I decided to stay.

Since the treatment, I’ve been doing much better and can now do things I used to struggle with. I’m taking it easy and being careful not to undo anything. With the prolapse issue resolved, I no longer have to worry about it.

I would definitely use Chrysalis Finance again; it’s a no-brainer! If I had to have another procedure, I would choose this financing option again. Especially with the current state of the NHS, the 12 months of interest-free credit saved me £250 compared to paying upfront.
