"Double Hernia Operation"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted in late August 2013. I arrived at 11. 00 am.

Benedicta was my Staff nurse and looked after me a treat. I was due for my op after lunch but was rushed through because of a cancellation and I woke up after the operation early afternoon.

I couldn't believe I had the op it was so quick. After a couple of hours having a laugh with the staff who looked after me with great care, I walked to the car park and was home before tea time.
