I attended the Urology Department for the above mentioned procedure on 10 June. To say I was nervous, concerned and apprehensive would be understatements. Nevertheless, I was seen at the appointed time and met my two specialist nurses. They immediately put me at ease, fully explained the procedure, the immediate consequences and also the possible risks involved. They also told me what to do in the event of an emergency. I was satisfied and signed the consent form. The procedure was painless and I felt very little. I was very slightly sore after the procedure and there was some very slight bleeding. I could not have been treated better if I were Royalty! The nurses were kindness themselves; they put me at ease; they did not rush me; they answered my questions; they were extremely professional and thoroughly charming. I won't know the results of my test until early July, but whatever the outcome I know I have two specialist nurses that will see me through. Thank you.
