Having had a breast cancer diagnosis, which left me in a state of shock for quite a long time,my emotions were all over the place. However,the dedicated staff at Exeter Hospital were very reassuring and helped me through the stages of my forthcoming treatments. My operation was within weeks after my diagnosis. I then had radiotherapy. Again the dedicated staff helped alleviate my fears.After my breast cancer operation, I had another scare with my other breast. A few weeks later, I had an operation at North Devon Hospital to remove milk glands. Thankfully, the result was fine.I've had my yearly mammograms, including Oncology appointments at North Devon Hospital for the past five years. Thankfully, I've had good results throughout. The staff have always been very kind and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them, even when they are very busy.Now my yearly visits have ended, I know if I need to see or speak to any staff, they will be there to help with any problems, should there be any.I feel a lot more positive now.
