I am pleased to report that nothing untoward was revealed by my procedure yesterday. Maureen didn’t come along after all as she just couldn’t get ready in time. However, I was well looked after by excellent nursing staff who eased me through a rather unpleasant procedure. I elected for the spray at the back of the throat rather than a general anaethestic. However you still can feel them prodding around your digestive system during the examination. Thankfully, I had some lovely nurses on hand to ease me through my discomfort, and wipe my furrowed brow.
On a previous occasion I had experienced the same procedure at a small private hospital, that also carries out work for the NHS. Yesterday’s experience was comparable to being in a private hospital. I would give the Endoscopy Suite and all staff a five star rating. They even managed to prioritise aspects of my investigation, so that I could get back home as quickly as possible. I have passed on my thanks to all concerned, and will put similar comments in writing..
