Posted by Miss AR (as ),
I had a Gastroscopy (camera down throat into tummy) yesterday.
I had never been to hospital for anything in my life ever so this was a huge scary deal to me.
Unfortunately I suffered a panic attack as I arrived but the staff leapt into action and calmed me down like magic.
The procedure itself was in the end beyond easy. I was expecting something horrific but the throat spray numbed me perfectly and the sedation was like having had a few glasses of wine too many.
I felt no distress or discomfort during or after and it was over literally before I knew it.
The staff relaxed me so much and all my worry was for nothing.
I would give these people a pay rise if I could!
Afterwards I was given tea and biscuits and went home feeling very happy.
