"pain therapy epidural spinal block"

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

I came for an epidural spinal block for nerve pain i have suffered for many years, i was a little worried about the pain as i have suffered a few painful lumbar punctures in past years ( not at calderdale royal ) i did not need to worry because everyone from the Consultant to the clinic nurses were fantastic and put me at my ease straight away, the staff were cheerful and more than willing to answer any questions i had, the Consultant described to me what was going to be done and also showed me this on a 3d image on pc, i cannot thank the team highly enough even to the point were the secretary phoned to warn me of possible travel delays at elland, many thanks to all involved it was much appreciated. thankyou
