Went for a biopsy today at the breast screening clinic and was dreading it, but the staff were wonderful - they apologised that I had to wait for quite a while as I would be anxious, then the nurse, radiographer made me as comfortable as they could and the nurse chatted to me whilst I was having the procedure. Afterwards I was taken into a comfortable room sat on the sofa and brought a cup of tea. The doctor had already explained to me what had been done but the nurse went through it all again and told me to ring any time if I had any questions. Back next week for the results which am hoping will be ok.
After some of the ways medical 'professionals' have spoken to me over the years this was like a breath of fresh air.
