    After 4 weeks of suffering with lower bowl pain and seeing 3 different Drs under the NHS I contacted Dr Simon Campbell he immediately requested a full CT scan and other tests, the results came back and we’re passed on to Dr Campbell he came back promptly with a full explanation of what was wrong and what was required. I am so grateful for such a professional service and in the way in which things were explained to me. I would have no problems in recommending the Services of Dr Campbell.

    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    Following a FIT test that indicated blood I contacted Dr. Campbell who very quickly organised a colonoscopy during which some polyps were removed. One of these contained some cancer, a signoidoscopy swiftly followed and showed that the cancer was not present in the bowel wall and was entirely contained in the removed polyp. So, I had a compltet all clear. Before the FIT test I had no symptoms whatsoever, no bleeding, no weight loss, no pain. I believe that without the FIT test and Dr. Compbell's efficient actions that within 3 - 6 months the cancer would have spread and been considerably more serious. I feel lucky and grateful.
