I was given a referral by my gp and I was given the choice of 5 hospitals, none of which were local to me, but I chose Coventry as we have family there and we could visit at the same time. After a number visits to outpatients, I was given a date for an op. Leading up to the op all was going well with regards to pre-op etc... The day of the op arrived and I was a nervous and emotional wreck! Knowing I had to have a general was scary enough but not knowing for definite that the op didn't leave me looking like I'd had a stroke was leaving me scared. All of the staff on the the day unit and in oitpatients were awesome. Made me feel completely at ease. Top marks. The only criticism I have is the ward doesn't let anyone sit with you while you wait for your op. (E.g. your partner) You're on your own, which is another reason why I panicked. I would like to see the option of having someone be with you while you wait.
