I attended my local GP with a badly swollen, and extremely painful left knee and foot. My doctor referred to Monklands A&E with a suspected DVT.
As I have never spent a night in hospital, and have only ever attended my doctor for minor ailments, I was a little apprehensive at this point.
I shouldn't have worried though. The three staff that attended to me (a nurse, trainee doctor and consultant) were amazing. Although working in a busy environment they always had a smile and took the time to explain each step of my diagnoses.
My condition turned out to be gout, and the medication and dietary changes required were fully explained to me.
I would just like to thank everyone involved with my treatment for there friendly and professional care.
