After we got the results for my spouse's stool sample (for which they had to ask for a test kit after contacting the Bowel Cancer group), we presented to our own doctor and were then listed for a pre-appointment with a doctor at Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital who explained the processes. They advised that sometime in the next 3-4 weeks we would get an appointment call for pre-admission/surgery at Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital.
Within a few days we get the call to Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital for colonoscopy procedure the following week. On the morning of the procedure we got a call from a staff member asking if we are able to come in earlier for a morning procedure instead, and we agreed to this. Arrived at Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital in the morning and went through the admission process forms/questions.... sigh: to await my spouse's morning procedure. Anesthetist comes in to do the pre-op checks, my spouse says they're lovely and explains all that's needed, and 20 minutes or so later down to surgery my spouse goes.
They return from theatre for post surgery checks and balances as required. Meanwhile the 3 nurses continue to complete the monitoring etc. and gave the all clear to leave with follow up appointment to get results from biopsy and inform of next visit back to see the surgeon in a week for results. Next step is trip to Perth for more surgery to remove the polyp discovered.
My spouse says a huge thanks to all staff/nurses on the day for their thorough care provided on the day and during earlier visits leading to the procedure. Very professional in their management provided. Thanks one and all from both of us.
