Had to report at 7am but did not go to theatre until 12. 45. No one kept me informed and the only contact I had was a nurse measuring and bringing compression socks. I have large ankles so had to have large socks but these were then very slack on my legs.
I had very good pre-assessment information and had been advised not too drink anything hot and just soft/liquid food for a few days so was surprised to be offered tea and toast when I got back to the ward!
I was then discharged before I felt that I had fully come round from the anaesthetic. I had to hang on to my husband to get to the car.
I then discovered when I got home that as well as the planned op, my tonsils had also been removed. It would have been nice to have been told this.
