"throat surgery"

About: City Hospital (Birmingham)

Anything else?

I was booked in for some work on my throat as I was having trouble with swallowing after they put camera in to investigate I was told treatment could not be done as in doctors opinion growth was not big enough. now I am no doctor but when you have water staying in your throats passage way and food coming backup that's a problem as I was left coughing and choking. if I have some spicy food problem is increased. now tell me what kind of doctor would make you suffer like that. no medicine was given to soften the blow to my system even after three visits, in my opinion it falls on doctors shoulders to improve patients health. plus more emphasis given to investigation than to remedy, why not enrole as a P.I. as a doctor you are put in charge to fix problems that people r having not to investigate.
