I have had an funny tummy for a few months, a while ago I had a week off work with stomach pains.
I have had all the tests done and was getting concerned.
I had a bowel cancer test, and several blood tests, found out I was slightly aenemic and getting worse between tests.
Today I had an endoscopy.
I arrived at 8.50 for a 9.00 appointment, I was seen before 9.00 to get my details etc.
I then waited for the procedure and waited and waited.
Eventually I was seen and it was gruesome, I opted for minimum anesthesia, a nurses hand on my shoulder and her words of encouragement were what got me through.
I was then due to have another blood test, nobody could log on to the computor to access my notes...........or something, so I waited and waited again.
Apparently I have gastritus and some ulcers, but according to all the advice a course of medication should clear it all up.
Time in hospital three(3) hours.
