"Colonoscopy with sedation"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

Obviously I was quite nervous about procedure.

Much, much better than I had anticipated.

I was a little early but was seen almost immediately.

Two nurses looked after me and were really friendly and professional.

In fact all staff were.

Theatre staff were quite jovial and relaxed (though professional). I had asked for sedation previously and received it quite quickly.

Afterwards in recovery nurses checked on me several times and when I was ready got dressed, went into a small lounge and had tea and toast - heaven after my long fast!

Nurse came and went through procedure and I especially liked that I was given a very detailed Report which gave all details of findings, drugs given, staff in theatre and small diagram.
