Following a referral from my GP, I attended the hospital for biopsies that diagnosed my cancer. After the results of scans, I was offered a choice between radiotherapy and surgery and, following separate discussion meetings with a radiographer and a surgeon, I opted for surgery. The surgeon allowed me to chose the date of my operation which did not conflict with pre-booked holiday arrangements. Following a successful recovery (thus far) I have been most impressed by the skill, care and diligence of the team before, during and after the operation and have written to confirm this and to advise that I do not think that my treatment could have been better.
