I went to AE for some pain relief, the Doctor sent me for a MIR scan and from that, A Neurosurgeon came to speak with me about the results and told me he would do an emergency operation that night on me as I had been living with constant back pain for months.
I can honestly say, I was overwhelmed with the care, attentiveness and patience with my endless questions and insecurities of the operation I had. The Team who performed the op all introduced themselves, made me feel at ease, talked me through every detail and we shared some good laughs before I got wheeled into theatre.
After surgery I was placed on Kinnier Wilson ward, where I met the most amazing Nurses/ Sisters, Who even though they were tired and very busy, made time for me and made me feel like I wasn't a burden. Over the days ahead, I got to know some beautiful individuals working on the ward and I am so humbled to have been able to spend time with them. The kindness, patience and cheery faces all day and night was inspirational to me. I cannot really find the words to try express my gratitude to them on that ward who looked after me post Op. Nothing was a bother, nothing was too much trouble no matter what time of day/night. Their love and deep compassion for all the patients on the ward was a beautiful thing to witness.
I have nothing but admiration, deep respect and a grateful heart to those workers who shared their time, professionalism and hearts to have made my stay, and the stay of others a peaceful one with all questions and doubts answered.
To all the amazing highly skilled Neurosurgery department and outstanding Staff on Kinnier Wilson ward a BIG heartfelt THANK YOU! from myself.
