"Gastro - The Scope"

About: City Hospital campus

Anything else?

Hi everyone I was admitted to Gastroscopy because of chronic abdo pain. The nurse was very friendly and explained and talked me through the procedures although I was a bit nervous. During the procedure the nurse was very supportive and comforting, I was in some discomfort when the scope was in my throat to my stomach but the nurse was very supportive during the examination and I felt at ease and the Endoscopist carefully looked in and around my gullet and stomach and told me I did really well although I still have my abdo. pains, I was happy with the whole team they were excellent and I would reccommend them to anyone with stomach problems. Thankyou to Endoscopy
