"knee replacement"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

i had knee replacement surgery on the 27th of Feb 2013 performed,I have had fantastic results, my pain has gone and it is fantastic to be able to walk without pain. After just 5 months i was discharged from the hospital, with one more visit to the physio i feel like i have been given a new lease of life. Whilst i was in hospital i was a bit dissapionted with the care i got, i thought i was being ignored when i rang the buzzer and had to wait for attention as i was in one of the many side wards, but after being moved on my last day into a ward with five beds i realised all the hard work the staff put into helping people. From the day i was admitted until i left i noticed a big change in the staff, their morale was so low,but they did and still do an excellent job so thanks to everyone who looked after me and a special thanks to my surgeon. Keep up the good work. People should try and look past their own needs and think, if the staff do not answer you immediately it's because they are attending to someone else who also needs them.
