Thank you so much for looking after me so professionally & carefully. I won't say the colonoscopy was a pleasure, but it was painless, quick. I have had no side effects. I hope the biopsies were negative. I'll look up the results but I have been away for 2 weeks & I am back at work. Kindest regards.
