My arrival in Bangkok was clouded
by nerves and I suppose fear of the
unknown,I had researched for my trip exstensively, but even that
not calmed my fears about what I was going to have done.
All that worry and anticipation just melted
away when the following morning
I was greeted at the door of Dr Pichet's consulting rooms by smiling
immediately I felt I had made the right decision, Dr Pichet's staff
wonderful. I was ushered upstairs to be seated in a very comfortable
area,where the laborious task of form filling was carried out with
with the help of a sweet Thai nurse, was completed very quickly.
Shortly after Dr Pichet arrived, he carried
out a very thourough
consultation, and what impressed me most was his honesty, he covered
aspect of what I was about to have done, for every positive aspect
pointed out what the negative could be.
By this time I was very comfortable with
Dr Pichet and knew I wanted to go
I was then taken by car to the Hospital,
where in the matter of a half an
hour I had an ECG, chest X-ray, blood pressure, blood tests the
taken to a private room. I couldn't believe the efficiency of the
and its staff.
Later that day I was taken down for surgery,
Mrs Mao (Dr Pichet's right hand
woman) accompanied me all the way to the doors of the theatre, giving
words of comfort and support, for which I thank her.
I remember waking some time later, in pain
and not sure where I was, Mrs Mao
was still there and stayed until I was fully awake.
The care in the hospital was amazing, I wanted
pain relief, the nurse could
not give me any until I had eaten, which I was finding difficult,
so she sat
with me and literally spoon fed me, then gave me the pain relief.
I am now back home in the UK, 3 weeks since
my operation, feeling wonderful,
and with wonderful memories of meeting and being cared for by true
profesionals, people who take a pride in their work, and treat you
respect and graciousness.
I know at some time in the future I will
return to Dr Pichet for further
work, he is superb at what he does. I want to take this time to
him and his staffs for everything they have done for me, I will
able to thank you enough.
Fondest Love, Ella. xx
