I had brain surgery performed on the 18th May. I had an MRI scan at Kings Mill, where the staff were also great, about 2 weeks before my surgery. I was called into the QMC about 10 days before my op where I met my surgeons, and my key worker and a lot of other surgeons, and I am ashamed to say I only remember the surgeon. I went for my operation on the 18th and it all went well. The doctor who performed it, removed a slow growing tumor from my brain, I didn't know but I had had it since a child. The op went well and I was in hospital for 6 days. The care I was given from the nurses was suburb!! I was in recovery for about 7 hours and I had my own nurse, who was very good. I was then moved to a ward, I am not which one, but it was very good. I was told, but I'm not sure which. I was given a bed bath for 2 days and I cannot thank the staff who did it enough! They dealt with me with utter dignity and respect, I just cannot say thank you enough times. On the Wednesday I had to go for a scan and a nurse came with me and stayed with me. This really did make me feel safe. I think the day after my scan, the surgeon came and explained my results. It has only been 6 weeks since my operation, I still have to have my radiotherapy but I just wanted to say how grateful I am to the surgeon, who if it wasn't for I wouldn't be here, and all of the nurses, who were all brilliant, I am. There was a nurse, who came with me for my scan, who really seemed to care for me. I cannot give this nurse enough praise, or speak highly enough of them.
