About: Leeds General Infirmary

I would like to thank all the staff in the Endoscopy department.I was treated with respect and kindness at all times which helped because i didn't know what to expect.I just wish at the time of procedure the consultant could have told me a little more of what had been found. So know i have to wait for the 16 biopsy results not knowing what they had been looking for.The only thing i was told was that there was no polyps.That didn't mean anything to me at the time.So until the results come back i am still worried that i have cancer after been ill for 3 months
