"Replacement Hip OP"

About: Warwick Hospital

Anything else?

Had my replacement hip operation on 7th May 2013 and was discharged 2 days later. Before the op I was very anxious but my fears were groundless. The surgeons and staff took great care with me and kept me informed throughout. Once home the SWATT team visited me for 2 days and then didn't need to see me again. I took the painkillers for a few weeks and used my crutches until 4 weeks. Yesterday had my post op appointment and they do not need to see me again for a year! The x-ray of my new implant looked very solid and I have also registered with the Ortho Card. I would like to thank all staff at Warwick Hospital including the Consultant for their care and dedication. It is appreciated. Jeff Best
