I originally had my bowel removed at the Rotherham District General. The whole process should have taken 5 days.
However, it was discovered that during the operation the Stoma bag had been trapped by mistake, and I had to have another operation. I then spent 2 weeks in the high dependency unit. I must say I don’t blame anyone for this, as accidents can occur during operations.
I recently changed to a new prescription service. Now I just ring a number and my prescription is delivered a couple of days later. The new system is very good.
The aftercare I received was very good. Every time I speak to the Stoma staff, the people at the end of the line are very friendly.
