"Ward F1 - Removal of Polyp"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Have just returned from F1 after having a polyp removed under general anaesthetic. The whole procedure was carried out by extremely caring staff. The surgeon came to explain what was involved and exactly what they were going to do. The surgeon's care and attention were exemplary, The anaesthetist then went through medical questions and the utmost care was taken to ensure my breathing was monitored and assisted as I have sleep apnea. On waking in the recovery room the Senior Anaesthetist with the anaesthetist I had seen before and two nurses were there to make sure I was ok. Their care could not have been better. All the staff on F1 were very kind and caring and I would recommend this department to anyone who has to have a gynaecological procedure. I must also mention the fabulous consultant at Rochdale who carried out an initial hysteroscopy and biopsy. They were the kindest and most gentle doctor I have ever met.
