About: Arrowe Park Hospital

I attended hospital today to have a large colonic polyp removed from my bowel by sigmoidoscopy, Never having had experience of anything like this before I was very nervous of the operation. The surgeon who performed the operation was very slick and professional and seemed to take no time to cleanly remove the polyp. The attending nurses were also very professional, but of equal importance were kind and caring. I would like to thank them all for making my experience in hospital as least unpleasant as it could have been and for successfully removing the large polyp that has been causing me discomfort for a long time.
