I had my first visit to the Good Hope treatment centre on the 5th of may 2015, where I met the consultant/ surgeon. Straight away they put my mind at rest and made me feel at ease, as Hospitals are one of the places I've always avoided like the plague. They booked my surgery for the 26th June 2015 at 1pm. I have always heard bad things about the NHS in regards of their standards, but I can honestly say I could not of been more happier with the way they treated me. I have a major phobia of needles, and so I knew this for me was a really big hurdle getting a hernia repair. All I can say is these people are a credit to their profession, and do not get enough praise for the wonderful jobs they do. It has been nearly 4 weeks since my surgery, and I could not be more happier with the way things have turned out for me. They are a brilliant surgeon, and after some of the horror stories I've read about online from other hospitals & surgeons, I really do count my blessings. I have no pain at all, although I do get sore around the area of the repair, but this is minor. I go for brisk walks every day to help speed up my recovery (which really does work). I would also like to thank the team who work on the wards, as they do an absolute stand up job, and would fully recommend Good Hope to anyone thinking about having this procedure done. I cant say enough about how well all the staff treated me, but I think I have made my point.... Amazing :)
