Less than two weeks ago I had Hip Arthroscopy, I was under the impression that a particular surgeon would be doing the surgery as that is who I had all my pre opp appointments with. although on the day of the surgery I was introduced to another surgeon who I had never met before? the morning after the opp the morning staff come in and usher us all out of bed to go get showers then as soon as we get back our beds have been stripped? Then the surgeon spends not even 2mins with me explaining what he actually did in surgery so I am still none the wiser at what he found whilst in there.
Then physio check I can walk up 3 stairs then go. Then I'm sent down to the discharge lounge. I think its disgusting I feel its all a big money making scam as Hip Arthroscopy is a new surgery which you need funding for so they are trying to get as many of us in and out as quick as they can!
This hospital is nearly three hours away from where I live and if I had known the way I would be treated I would not of chosen Harrogate! I also asked for a sick note on the ward but was never given one, and now have also been told because I missed my first physio app that I am now discharged. I would never recommend anyone use this hospital.
