"Nasal Cautery by Silver Nitrate"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I visited Q A for the first time on 12th January 2014. Obviously I didn't have a clue where I was going so it was really nice to find a friendly greeter just past the reception area to give advice and directions. The hospital is massive and as I made my way along the corridors I must have still looked lost as three more members of staff asked if I needed help. That was nice. The doctor I saw was thorough and explained the procedure and carried it out well. In my case he gave me aftercare advice, said the nose would run for a couple of days, but I was not told that I would get these severe sinus/flu type symptoms. Had trouble sleeping last night due to the severe head ache and my teeth ached. Then again, maybe not everyone would suffer the same after effects. Overall I found the hospital and staff first class and could not find fault. Thank you.
