I've had tummy problems for a while and the doctor needed to examine my full colon; a colonoscopy. I was nervous as this was my first experience of 'surgery'.
The nursing staff and doctor both before, during and after were very reassuring and caring. Although I took my nerves in with me, after recovering I feel totally at ease with what happened and how staff were able to do their medical jobs whilst reassuring the patient.
