"Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension - Papillodema"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I was referred to the eye unit by my optician. After quite an eventful 2 days and a shock with my diagnosis I was introduced to the Consultant, they were amazing. They really explained my diagnosis to me and even showed me all my scans and results so that I fully understood my condition. I felt so much more at ease after meeting them.

All the nursing staff were fantastic and also very supportive and reassuring to. I met with a member of staff who did photo's and scans of my eyes, they were fab and very patient with me as I was still quite shaky. I will now be under the eye unit and the Consultant for the next few years and I am confident that I have the best people to work with.

Thank you so much to you all.

Response from Royal Bolton Hospital

Dear Nicola, Sometimes not knowing is harder than understanding what you are dealing with, so it is good that after the initial shock of your diagnosis, you now have the information and reassurance you need. Thank you for posting this and we wish you will with your treatment.
