I had a pre arranged appointment for an ultrasound scan of my neck this morning. Unfortunately I was a wee bit late as I was struggling with a very sore foot from a fall a day or two before. The scan was carried out very quickly and nothing untoward discovered. The staff at reception and the consultant carrying out the scan were very friendly and really helpful with there advice.
As I was leaving I wondered if I should get my foot checked. I had put the pain down to a gout attack brought on by the fall ( I had been releasing a mouse that had been brought in by my cat and slipped on the grass.) but I did wonder if it was perhaps a more serious injury.
Again the staff at A&E were very helpful and I was seen very quickly. The Dr was fantastic and after looking at my foot thought it best I had an X Ray. So within about 20 minutes of leaving the X Ray department I was back there again. Receptionist was clearly quite puzzled when she asked for my name but I explained why I was back. A trainee nurse x rayed my foot about 10 minutes later and the Dr saw me again with the result of my x Ray about 5 minutes later. Nothing sinister but for perhaps a very tiny hairline crack but not conclusive. Maybe it was just the gout. I am hoping the wee mouse was as grateful for my intervention and help as I am to the fantastic people that helped me today at the RAH. Thank you and all of your colleagues for the fantastic work you do.
