I attended ward 16 day unit for a bone marrow aspiration and biopsy. From the moment I arrived nurse Jane put me at ease. She explained everything that was going to happen in stages and went over after care at home. The procedure did feel slightly uncomfortable and only little pain near the end. However Jane counted in stages, speaking to me throughout, making sure I was comfortable and this helped greatly. The procedure did not feel rushed and I was always asked how I was feeling. Jane called me at home later that day to check all was ok. Very positive experience from something I was feeling anxious about.
