I attended Crosshouse endoscopic unit for colonoscope other day can't fault staff for care and attention a really nice bunch of people and surgeon mr Felsenstein was great
All put me at ease and treated me excellent
My only concern is with description of a colonoscope in leaflets as uncomfortable
I opted for no sedation or pain relief of anykind despite nurses advising to have it
It is more than uncomfortable but doable
A bit of honesty in pre procedure info would go a long way to preparing patients imho
Anyone expecting a bit of discomfort is in for a suprise.
That said I would if needs be have another
Surgeon and the nursing worked me controlling breathing holding my hand etc
Very misleading literature imho.
With no sedation I walked out after procedure having had sandwich and cup of juice ( my choice of drink, yes I got to choose drink and sandwich filling five star service )
I went into town straight away and felt completely fine can't thank staff enough
