"Recovery after thyroidectomy"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I have just left hospital after having a thyroidectomy. I was on ward 307. The care and support i received were excellent,i did become upset when i couldnt come home due to having a drain in my neck but was supported by all the staff and they came to talk to me all the time giving me reassurance when i needed it most. One nurse was especially helpful and had a lovely personality which shone through. The food was excellent i was so surprised because i didnt know what to expect but it was lovely and had plenty of choice,lemon sponge and custard became my favourite!
