"I look forward with hope"

About: City Hospital campus / Thoracic surgery

(as the patient),

I had my operation for cancer of the oesophagus on 2nd February which went very well and I made a speedy recovery. Thanks to the very good nursing and surgical teams around me which excellent advice and support after the operation. I had my last visit with the surgeon on 17th Dec 09. A week later I was admitted with confusion and was found to have lesions on the brain. I was sent back to oncology for tests and scans have since had radiography and chemotherapy in order to reduce the lesions in the brain, fingers crossed I look forward with hope.

All through the treatment everybody has been excellent, however the ontology clinics have been a little slow and I'm not sure how they can speed it up. I'm sure they have a system and I don't wish them to speed things along and make mistakes. Having said this when you see the doctors they are very good in their explanation of your case and treatment. The City Hospital is very good and seems organised and clam.
