"Endoscopy of the lung 22/06/2015"

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

For several days while waiting for this date to arrive I lived in dread/fear/anxious nerves. On the date and arrival then been spoken re- the treatment I still was in a place called dread/doom. Once in the room for the procedure and seeing the 3 nurses and doctor I calmed down by only 5% got onto bed and the nurses did the preparation, and then when they had finished I had the sedation injection. Then the process started and what seemed like 5 minutes and no immediate feeling that the camera was down and now out it was finished. If you are very afraid like me as I was bricking it do not be, put your faith in these people asto say they are tremendous is an understatement. Have no fear it is over before it begins. Thank you to the doctor and all your nurses, bleedin tremendous.
