After the cancellation of my planned surgery in December, I was re-admitted in January 2018. I was admitted directly into ITU as all elective surgical procedures had been cancelled due to shortage of beds. Following surgery I returned to ITU from where I was returned to theatre 2 days later for emergency surgery. I am pleased to report that this was successful and I am now home recovering well.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mr Pal for his surgical care and his continuing attention while I remained in hospital. Please also pass on my thanks to all staff in ITU and Ward 7 who did an amazing job in providing care and support at a very difficult time for the hospital, due to the pressures of overcrowding and the weather conditions which hindered a number of staff reporting for duty.
