I was on holiday in Cornwall and was suddenly taken ill with variceal bleeds.
Having been assessed in A&E I received treatment that day and was cared for in ICU whilst under an induced coma. I was later transferred to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth for TIPPS procedure.
The care I received from all at Treliske was excellent and all staff were approachable by my wife, on my behalf, as I was in a coma, to discuss treatment and prognosis.
I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the skill and compassion of the staff concerned.
Many, many thanks!!!
