Being an outpatient means that you will visit hospital a few times
but you don't need to stay overnight.
Sometimes you might need to come
back into hospital many times. This is so the doctors can find out what
is wrong and help to make you better. Once you've been in once or
twice you'll soon get to know the people there.
You will meet
your nurse, the doctor and the rest of his/her team who will look after you.
There's no chance of getting bored, with plenty of
videos to watch and computer games. After your treatment, you can
choose what you want to eat from a special menu. When you're feeling
better after your treatment, and have had something to eat and drink,
you'll be able to go home.
The nurses will tell you and your family what to
expect after the treatment, and will call you at home the next day to
make sure everything is okay.
