"before and after care"

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

before my operation I was told I would need help due to having spondylitis. I said no I haven't got spondylitis and I'm fine. The anaesthetist said oh yes you have, it's written here, then shown me. I said that was rubbish and I haven't. The anaesthetist looked confused. After my op' a random doctor approached me while I was still recovering from general anaesthetic in my room and asked could two junior docs ask me some questions about my op'. I obliged, although not happy due to feeling rough. They asked me questions about my stomach op', er hang on I've had an ear operation and the random doc' called me by a different name, then to top it all I had a health care assistant that didn't speak or smile who tried to take my tempt by sticking a probe in the ear I had just been operated on twice. So overall rating in my book of hinchingbrooke hospital is rubbish!
