I had an appointment on Friday with a GI motility consultant who delivered the devastating news that I should try bowel self irrigation. The consultant was very helpful and supportive. I was given the number of the GI specialist nurse to contact for further information, support and advice.
I eventually contacted them as this news has been difficult to come to terms with. The nurse gave me a lecture over the phone about commitment to this treatment. The nurse was less than impressed that I had not watched the dvd. I was met with negativity and a total lack of interest. I was told to phone back when I had at least watched the dvd! Person centred care?
