About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Anything else?

I was very scared, not only of the operation, but also of the nursing care following the procedure. I was pleasantly surprised that every nurse I came into contact with was helpful and patient. The general cleanliness of the ward was excellent. The food was questionable but edible. I was discharged after two days and was not given any advice about what exercises I can do or when I should start. Although I was sent home with plenty of pain killers, I have not needed to take much. I would like to give my very grateful thanks to doctors and nursing staff.
