Medecine, mistakes and a misapprehension

On the grounds of good taste I’m not going to go into detail about what happened at hospital this afternoon.

The facilities are good, the staff were cheerful and I was only away from home for 45 minutes (we can see the hospital from our house so travel doesn’t take long). Despite this I’m not very happy with the experience.

It’s hard to feel satisfaction when you go in for tests and come out without having the tests done.

The NHS did not cover itself in glory today.

However, my day was better than the man who was waiting with me. He Β was under the misapprehension that they were going to put the camera down his throat.


Today’s photographs are just a few selected from thousands…

    I had a down the throat camera experience just over a year ago. Better than I thought it would be as it goes up the nose first! Sorry the tests weren’t done – what a waste of time and all that adrenalin and nervous tension too!
    Lovely photos πŸ™‚

    I’ve been through the whole camera experience and, take it from me, down the throat is much worse than the other possibility. Small comfort, I know. Hope you get a proper evaluation soon.
