Good morning T
I have to say the procedure was traumatic and I am now apprehensive about it being repeated
Somehow I will just have to get through it
We all put our trust in those caring for us when in hospital
The pain though was bad and I kept thinking I want this to stop
Kind regards Stephen

Good morning everyone
Sorry it's been a while since my last post
Recently I have been informed that I cannot undergo an operation on my bowel
The surgeon says I will not survive the operation even though that had been recommended to deal with the cancerous polyp
I am due to have another colonoscopy in December just to see if there is any sign of the polyp returning
The reason why surgery was recommended is because the polyp was close to the bowel wall and there is a risk that cancer cells may be left behind
Kind regards Stephen

Good afternoon Welshy
Thanks for your kind comments
Surgery was the recommended treatment but unfortunately I have too many underlying health problems for this option
The surgeon said that for someone with just early stage bowel cancer surgery is problematic
He said unfortunately I cannot consider it in your case and we will just monitor you for now
Kind regards Stephen

Good evening Jeff and all viewing this topic
Yes I agree Atos aka Lourdes will no doubt declare me cured in due course :yes:
Currently I am now trying to get a parking fine overturned which was incurred whilst I was undergoing a endoscopy
The consultant was late seeing me on the day in question
A friend who is disabled and a blue badge holder gave me a lift to the hospital and waited for me
Apparently there is a 3 hour waiting limit and if longer is taken then a note must be obtained from the hospital department to avoid being fined
We appealed and received a letter saying the appeal has been denied
We explained in the appeal letter that having treatment for bowel cancer focuses the mind rather than worrying about car parking
Also I was given sedation and the letter clearly stated I had to have a lift to and from the hospital that day
I now intend getting on to the department at the hospital to see if they can have the penalty notice cancelled
The hospital is out in the sticks and very difficult to reach by public transport
The parking enforcement company is called Ce Services Ltd
Kind regards Stephen

Good morning everyone
Yesterday I decided to pay the £35 parking fee
In my opinion the deadline was looming where it would have been doubled
What I will now do is ensure it doesn't happen again
I note another hospital uses the same company to enforce parking rules
They say that once the penalty has been issued the patient must deal directly with the company not the hospital
Kind regards Stephen

Good morning Stephen,

Ce Services Ltd seem to be contradicting them self's from what I can see. Stating that if you need extra parking time then you would need a letter from the Hospital claiming that fact. It would of coarse be needed to question the fine in the first place and to disallow the payment of said fine.

Ce Services Ltd say that in order to make any claim of being fined that you are to deal with them and not the Hospital. Surely. If you have that letter then the payment should have been made void. They are not working to rule here as far as I see. Appeal it again using that letter from the Hospital. Get the consultants secretary to confirm his lateness in attendance of your appointment. It could make all the difference.

Good morning SB
According to the penalty notice, upon arrival at the hospital We should have ensured reception entered the details on the system
We were not aware of this requirement if longer than 3 hours would be taken
I still think the hospital could have cancelled this penalty when I first raised the subject
As I say though it is a lesson learned and I will not allow this to occur again
Kind regards Stephen
