"Following a hip replacement"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

Anything else?

I would like to thank everybody who looked after me, nursing staff, anesthetist, surgeon, physio, literally everyone. I was a very nervous patient having a full hip replacement age 40. Every member of staff I had any dealings with was fantastic. I was lucky enough to be in The Wells Suite which was very comfortable. I had a couple of 'wobbles' but the staff soon comforted & reassured me. I would love to thank each & every one of them, night & day staff. I was lucky enough to be admitted 7.30am Saturday, although not in theatre until after 3pm, but I was discharged just after 3pm Monday & am now healing comfortably at home with my family. I hope the staff know how special they all are!
