"My Total Knee Replacement Operation by the doctor..."

I went into hospital for the above on the 25/6/14. This is the third time i have had ops at this hospital. I can only say that it gets better every time. I admit to be the most nervous patients on gods earth and if anybody is as bad as me be assured you will be looked after so well. When it was my time to go to Theatre my angel appeared the nurse she held my hand so tight and spoke to me so kind and was there when i awoke in the recovery room i cant thank her enough and she will always be in my thoughts. God bless her i now know angels exist on earth as well as heaven, I cant name all the other staff but they are so kind and caring. Of the physio staff there is one and she knows who she is as the best attitude of anyone i have ever met. Shes great and takes no prisoners. Well i can also moan. If you are going in for weight loss just look at the menu and go home with it and save your weight loss money. Its not nice and its so repetative. Well to my last comment my Surgeon. I thank him so much for giving me my life back . He dont mince his words and tells it as it is. Thanks to him i am going to walk.
