"Having a Colonoscopy."

Yesterday I had a colonoscopy at the Endoscopy day intervention unit Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy.
The staff in this unit are excellent,treating me with dignity,compassion and humour.
I'm almost 70 and find sometimes people can be patronising but certainly not in this unit. I have been having colonoscopies for around 20 years now because I have Ulcerative Colitis and this was the easiest one ever, the specialist nurse Adele who did it was gentle and explained everything very clearly.
The only negative thing I can say is I wish someone would invent a better preparation as the stuff you have to drink the day before is vile! This has certainly not improved in 20 years but is nothing to do with the staff.
Thank you to all the staff in this unit for their kindness.
