"Pelvic ultrasound scan"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Got a next day appointment for ultrasound scan which was fantastic as I was so scared about ovarian problems. Building & grounds very nice ... staff pretty good.

Got shown to changing cubicle where I was to change into a gown only to find the previous patients gown still on the bench. Radiogropher quickly removed this. Dr & assistant very nice but bearing in mind my main concern was knowing my ovaries were healthy .... at the end of my scan the Dr said he thought he'd seen my my overies and they looked ok. Not too convincing for my liking.

As you need to have a full bladder for the scan obviously I was desperate for the toilet ... I found this a big dissapiontment ... bins overflowing with tissue ... not what I would expect. Happy to get a fast scan to be reassured all is ok but the overall experience could have been much better. Coffee machine not working, not good when only water allowed for over 4 hours.

Anyway I must stop complaining because I am so happy that all is well & I got to find that out within 24 hrs.
