About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

I had a cystoscopy done about a month ago,was really nervous about having it done.although procedure isn't that pleasant,the staff were really nice and while having it done I was asked questions about this and that,so took my mind off of it.dignity wise,again excellent,although there were about 4 people in room,I was kept covered as far as possible,and really the only person to "see anything" was the nurse doing it.it was over quickly,and I never had any problems afterwards,due to treatment,which was good.so all in all,it was all fine.hope this reassures anyone who has to have it done
