“I sincerely hope that I never have another gynaecological problem but if I do, I will not hesitate for a moment to seek help from Mr Louden”
Having had previous gynaecological problems in the past, I was very distressed at the sudden appearance of what seemed to be a large lump. After a long wait to obtain an appointment with my GP, I saw a locum who was honest enough to admit that she did not know what the problem was but promptly referred me to Gynaechoice at my request.
Within two working days I had a consultation with Mr Louden who immediately recognised my concerns. He made an instant diagnosis of the problem & explained the treatment required as well as explaining fully all the “what ifs”.
Just one week later, I had the procedure under general anaesthetic as a day patient, arriving at the hospital at lunch-time & returning home in the early evening. I was fortunate to recover very quickly & only needed to take pain relief for one day. The day after I returned home I felt well enough to go for a short walk & was able to more each subsequent day & was back to normal very quickly. I was kept fully informed of the results of the lab tests as soon as they came through.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Louden & all the other members of staff that I came in contact with for their extreme professionalism & kindness during this time. I sincerely hope that I never have another gynaecological problem but if I do, I will not hesitate for a moment to seek help from Mr Louden.
