I attended the Haematology Out Patient Department at the North Devon Hospital for an ongoing assessment of my Low Grade Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.
The Consultant, Dr Hamilton was really good and suggested I had an inhalation of Nitrous Oxide, while undergoing a Bone Marrow Biopsy.
The biopsy was done (I think by his registrar) and was almost pain free, unlike my previous experience of a biopsy at a different hospital, many years ago.
I am very grateful for the attention and consideration I received from all the staff.
