"Day visit to gynaecology ward ended up disastrous"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

Went for a two small operations at the same time - woke up in recovery experiencing a lot of pain the lady there was very rude dismissed me completely - I was wheeled through from recovery put in a recliner chair in a room in agony I rung for family to come and get me thankfully- got home and during the night I still wasn't right- rung them -went back in still in agony- they eventually sorted me - however in the process of this one nurse who was very rude insinuated the pain was in my head -which was quite bizarre - only to eventually speak to the surgeon who did the operations in the first place who admitted a slight struggle during the operation due to a slight complication he came across - if your in pain good luck as it was my worst nightmare quite a scary visit never want to experience this again. I will never return nor will I ever see any of my family go there either.
