"Recent interventional procedure and overnight hospital stay"

About: Raigmore Hospital

(as the patient),

I underwent uterine artery embolisation in the interventional radiology department that required planned overnight stay.

Due to severe ischaemic pain I required patient control analgesia (PCA), this was explained fully to me beforehand.

The pain was unbearable, the PCA was effective.

Hazel, Pat, Jan, Peter, Rebecca, Charlotte, Pauline and Sharon looked after me brilliantly.
