Having had numerous chest infections for several years, it was eventually decided to remove nasal polyps which were preventing me smelling or tasting, and clearly blocking airways leading to infections.
I had an operation in May 2015 and have just been seen for my final discharge outpatient appointment. I can now smell and taste things plus I have not had a chest infection for several months so I am a lot better.
I would like to thank the surgical team and the above doctor, not only for making me better, but also for not causing me a lot of trauma post-op - bleeding was minimal and breathing was not obstructed.
In the past, when I have had to visit either hospital, my experience has been good. Having managed teams of people in the past, I know it is as important to praise when it is due, as it is to castigate when someone fouls up. Most people only complain - I am glad to be able to praise. I would add I have no connection to either hospital and have no "axe to grind".
