Mrs N - Treatment for bowel cancer

"I was treated at Spire Cheshire Hospital by Dr Subramaniam Ramakrishnan, consultant gastroenterologist. I was experiencing changes to my usual bowel habits, weight loss, lack of appetite and extreme tiredness and anaemia. Unusually I think, I also had several episodes of high temperature and rigors which was found not to be related to infection.

"I have only the highest praise for all the staff at the Spire Cheshire Hospital"

"Following a gastroscopy, which was negative and review of CT scan of my abdomen which showed a thickening in my bowel Dr Ramakrishnan performed an urgent colonoscopy, which confirmed bowel cancer. He then referred me to a consultant surgeon who performed my surgery to remove the tumour.

"I was in the high dependency unit for 48 hours following the operation, during this time my pain was managed very efficiently and post-operative care was excellent. I was then transferred to the ward where I continued my recovery. I remained in hospital for seven days.

"I have only the highest praise for all the staff at the Spire Cheshire Hospital, everyone I came into contact with during this frightening and worrying time made me feel supported and confident in their expertise. The standard of care at this hospital is second to none and I would like to thank each and everyone I had contact with. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Spire Cheshire Hospital to anyone for the quality of care and excellent medical staff.

"My sincere thanks to you all."
