In a time of anxiety Tracy gave me a knowledgeable and informative consultation on my condition and the options open to me .This was done in a professional caring manner which helped me make my treatment option, Thank you
Tracy Ellis is a friendly professional in whom you cannot fail to have complete trust. Once diagnosed, my meeting with her could not have n=been more reassuring. She went over every detail of what Prostate Cancer meant, she explained exactly what the treatment was and how it would attempt to combat the disease. She went into detail of possible side effects, what to expect during treatment and the follow up at the end of treatment. She answered, in detail, all the questions I posed, to my complete satisfaction. She gave me confidence going into the course of treatment and I knew that there were going to be no nasty surprises around the corer as she had explained everything. Tracey Ellis and Andrew Hunnisett are a good team, who work in the brilliant Rosemere Centre at The Royal Preston Hospital. They made the journey through the Prostate Cancer treatment a more pleasant experience than it might have been. Thank you very much.
Tracey's initial presentation of structure of the prostate, the nature of the disease, the treatment technology and treatment process were critical in my choosing radiotherapy; well constructed diagrams work for me! My only point of confusion following the initial consultation was the scope of effect of hormone therapy. I came away with the impression that it had some effect on cancer cells that had 'escaped' the prostate, I subsequently read its role is limited to shrinking the prostate and the cancer, making treatment easier. I'm still a bit confused. In retrospect the hormone treatment has had a longer lasting impact on me that the radiotherapy. As well as the hot flushes I've had joint pain in my knees and dry skin on the hands. There's no information on hormone therapy in any of the A5 'Lancashire Teaching Hospital' radiotherapy leaflets I have, and I have just realised I'm missing the 'Prostate Cancer UK' leaflet on hormone therapy, mentioned in their leaflet 'External beam radiotherapy', which I should have asked for. Leaving aside the tedium of daily travel to the hospital, the actual radiotherapy was a breeze. The environment is very relaxing, the processes were really slick and the staff utterly professional - a credit to the NHS!
I was treated professionally and sympathetically Tracey was able to answer all of our questions and was reassuring throughout my treatment Her team were very friendly and caring A special mention to all the staff at the Rosemere Cancer Centre Preston who were all outstanding
Tracey and CNS Andrew Hunnisett were totally professional when I had an appointment with them to discuss the best treatment for my recently diagnosed condition..From the outset, I felt at ease while Tracey covered all aspects of my conditon and treatment options and she managed it in a very friendly way. They gave a full review of my situation, made some well considered recommendations and answered all my questions with great candour.
