"Gastrology"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I am a very nervous patient hate not being in control I paniced for weeks about having the camera down my throat when I got there everyone was lovely

I had a few questions as I've never been sedated even at dentist

The consultant gastro was a bit aloof but they did answer my questions about the Meds etc given

I had a mouth guard fitted and an injection and before I knew it I was awake and staff chatting to me I would opt for sedation for that procedure it's simpler especially as they monitor your heart your airways etc throughout it all they were very good

I hope everyone has the same experience as I did
