I have had to travel to Wonford hospital to receive radiotherapy treatment due to the Covid pandemic. The care has been a long process but it has gone alright - everything has been explained.
During the treatment they upset my prostrate and I had to have a catheter fitted.
I thought they would provide hospital transport but because of the virus instead I had to drive myself. This has proved quite difficult with the catheter there are no public toilets on the journey and I had to use laybys to stop to empty the bag - not a pleasant experience.
I originally had my pre-op at Exmouth which is only 20 miles away from my home. For my biopsy I had to travel to Turton hospital by taxi which was expensive at £80.
