Following both heart and thyroid issues recently, a conclusion was made that I needed to have both a heart and thyroid operation, however, a decision for which operation I should have first, had to be made. I was 100% involved in the decision making between both the heart and the thyroid consultants as to which operation needed to be done first. I was also kept fully informed of the risks involved, together with their decisions regarding the 'before and aftercare' that I would receive. On the morning of my operation was a time of great anxiety for me, but the theatre teams were brilliant. I knew that I was going to be placed on the Critical Care Unit and again, the care I received on this ward was fantastic. I will be forever grateful to all teams involved, nothing was too much trouble. I would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone for the 'before and aftercare' I have received. Thank you so very much.
