Years i was suffering from Diarrhoea and the urge to go to the toilet and nothing happening this played a big part in not participating in family activities.I never seen a GP about it because I was embarrassed and also scared of the unknown.
I took the plunge and seen GP who referred me for a colonoscopy,from that moment my anxiety hit the roof,I looked at videos online and listened to people who had it done "mixed opinions" which fuelled anxiety.
I should never have listened or watched as to be honest colonoscopy was ok.The drink was awful and was at the toilet 29 times WOW that wasn't pleasant "worst part of all".Jean "nurse in charge"was great put me at ease and very clear on what was going to happen.Went in for procedure 2 nurses were great Eva and Julie,doctor was great Dr Sengupta.I was sedated and the whole procedure was OK remember some bits and NO pain,once I felt discomfort but to be honest was ok and had 4 biopsies taken.
In whole there was nothing to worry about,and I suffer bad with anxiety but the staff was absolutely brilliant and this made everything so much better and a massive THANKYOU to those involved with Colonoscopy,and the NHS what a great job you are all doing under current times.
