"Colonoscopy"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

I was quite worried about having this colonoscopy having read on the internet how bad it was. Well please please don't be worried. I was explained everything that was going to happen by a lovely nurse who told me everyone is different some feel pain some don't then I got undressed even allowed to leave bra and sweater on then the lady doctor came who was lovely and explained everything again then away we went the exam was over in no time I had two lovely nurses with me who at all time told me how well I was doing and the doctor did the same there was a little bit of discomfort but nothing like I had read about then it was over cup of tea and biscuit and the relief. everything was ok I am 76years of age and realised all that worry was for nothing the hospital staff at all times were caring and put you at ease and the whole experience was nothing to worry about
