"after being checked as an out ..."

About: Barnsley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

after being checked as an out patient for the problem with my knees, recieving injections firstly to try and control the pain, I was in one day for heart checks then a few days later went in for my right knee replacement. Three days and I was home stiches out a week later about 6 weeks of physio then back in for the left knee replaceing, this time only in 2 days. 6 more weeks of physio. I must say the patient has to want to get going to get the best benefit. the food was excelent. Also I would highly recomend an epidural for the operation it was facinating to here the drill and saw and not feel a thing. by the way they put a screen up so I could not see what was happening.

What could be improved

mybe explain a bit mre about the operation about the screen etc.
