"My diagnosis at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I had already had a week in hospital and they couldn't find out what all the pain was about, and was discharged with a bag full of pain killers. Had one night at home in agony and went back again. This time I was lucky to be put under the care of Mr Pearson. He soon had me scanned and down for emergency operation. He took two parts of my intestines away, and I was seriously ill for a day or two. On my 82nd birthday I was told the tests had come back positive for cancer of the bowel. I couldn't have asked for better treatment. It was second to none.
