This lady had a colonoscopy at Tameside Hospital as she had found blood after bowels opened. She was extremely nervous and asked for sedation. She says “They put a needle in the back of my hand which I assumed was sedation” but she found the procedure extremely painful. She was shouting out for them to stop, but this was ignored. She could not believe how painful it was and was not warned about this.
She felt “wobbly” for days afterwards and lives alone so this was also difficult.
