I was quite nervous for my gastroscopy but the staff and medical team made me at ease. The lovely nurse had some trouble finding a vein (my veins are always hard to find!), but after she hooked me up she said she was proud of me and that really warmed my heart (I say this to my kids all the time, but rarely does anyone say this to ME ☺️). Also, the other nurse who explained everything in the procedure room was very sweet. Dr. Reimer (unsure of his name) was kind and friendly and he took the time to explain, no rush. I fell asleep as soon as the drugs were administered I guess, because I don’t remember anything except for waking up, comfortable, unhooked, and feeling relaxed from the drugs 🙂
If you can afford to go private for your gastroscopy, I recommend Endovision. The wait time for this procedure in a non-urgent case like mine is far too long in the public system, unfortunately.
