"endoscopy, day patient, James Paget"

About: James Paget University Hospital

Had the attention of my consultant and his team a few days ago, and fairly full attention it was - scoped from both ends. From reception through to discharge 3 or 4 hours later, I was treated with the utmost respect and gentleness, and to put this experience into perspective, the two-day prep ay home was considerably more troublesome by comparison - and that wasn't as awesome as expected either! If viewable by anyone awaiting treatment, I hope this review might reduce anxiety. I certainly won't worry about follow-up scoping should it be necessary in years to come, based on my experience this week.
