"Faultless treatment"

About: Musgrove Park Hospital (Taunton)

Following 18 months of successful steroid injections to my spine I elected to undergo spinal fusion surgery at levels L5/S1. From arrival on day 1 to departure on day 4 I can only describe the treatment that I received as being faultless. Arriving at the hospital for 0700 I was quickly seen and sorted and walked to the operating theatre around 0930. Some 5 hours later I was waking up and recovering from a major procedure. The nursing and surgical team were brilliant, informative and professional. The surgeon himself ..... exceptional. The outcome, well 10 weeks post op I am for the first time in 20 years totally pain free.

Thank you for sharing your experience. To be pain free after such a long time must be liberating for you, I hope you can now do things you couldn't before. I have passed on your comments to the Ward Sister for sharing with team and also the Spinal Surgeons.
