"My mastectomy at Macclesfield General Hospital"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

In October last year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at Macclesfield General Hospital and was admitted for a mastectomy operation, which was carried out under Mr. Kokan's care.

I cannot praise everyone involved enough. I was extremely frightened (who wouldn't be?), but all the staff involved were absolutely wonderful. The operation went really well and I experienced no post-op problems whatsoever.

A massive THANK YOU to Mr Kokan and his team, and all concerned at the Macclesfield General and also to Dr Whaley and staff at Park Green GP Surgery.
