If you’ve ever had a colonoscopy? An NHS Story

If you’ve ever had a colonoscopy then you might know that the surgical procedure itself is nowhere near as painful as maybe you’d first feared. I’ve had two colonoscopies in the last month and can now describe them from experience as no more than ‘uncomfortable.’ I’ll get to the precise whys and wherefores of my […]
