"Good experience of surgery for inguinal hernia"

About: Lymington New Forest Hospital

(as the patient),

Mid-June 2015 I was due for surgery and I was very apprehensive, however the nurse that saw me straight away put me at ease almost instantly. I was looked after so well even down to the hospital porter.

The surgery itself was... well, I can't remember to be fair but the stitching was immaculate and although there was some discomfort (to be expected) I never once felt anything but safe! Everyone that took care of me earned every penny of that pittance the government give them.

I would recommend everyone for surgery there even if you don't need it! Once again, good job Knightwood Ward.
