"Gynecology: is painful, personal data wrong, and..."

About: Queen Mary's Hospital

I've been there twice. Normally ultrasonic scans are not painful (I'm 48 and have enough experience here) but twice different doctors managed to really make it painful and didn't even care when you told them not to. For further treatment one of them proposed to take a sample from inside the uterus without sedation. Fortunately they forgot to send out the invitation. I wouldn't have gone back anyhow. The only (bitter-)sweet experience here was that on paper they made me 10 years younger again.
