"My experience of day surgery on level 3"

About: Westmorland General Hospital

I went in for an Hernia operation (Laparoscopic) at 07.45hrs from the minute I arrivied I was looked after by polite and curtious staff and they made feel very comfortable. The theatre staff reasurred me that every thing would be ok. I should have come home that evening, but due to some disscomfort and trouble passing water after the opp I had to stay in over night. I was taken to ward 7 where the day staff and night staff made sure I was well looked after. During the morning after some tests were done I was allowed home about lunch time.
