I was diagnosed with a tumour in my right kidney around 6 weeks ago following a CT scan. I had an operation to remove my right kidney and then recovered in the Mersea Ward. My consultant was Mr Pillai whom I believe was assisted by Mr Deshpande for the surgery.
Throughout the process Mr Pillai, Mr Deshpande and the team at the Urology Unit have been fantastic. No question has been too silly to ask, and I have never felt that anyone does not have time to talk to me. Things have been explained clearer to me and I have always been treated with kindness and consideration. The staff on Mersea ward were also wonderful, keeping things upbeat for me and again being professional yet also easy going.
I am sure that I was able to be discharged so quickly after the surgery because of the excellent care I received and the skill with which the team performed my operation.
The food was not fantastic - but that is such a minor issue in the greater scheme of things.
