"long, uncomfortable wait for surgery."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

My son had an operation yesterday on his rear end after waiting 6 increasingly unpleasant months wait following miss-diagnosis at his G.P.'s surgery.

He had to wait over 4 hours for his procedure sat on a hard plastic chair!

After surgery he was sent home looking really ill and was vomiting for the next few hours.

His dressing/packing came adrift during the evening but fortunately he fell asleep for the rest of the night.

The District Nurse is due to visit daily, today is a Saturday, we have not been given an approximate time and have no means of contact.

We hope for better follow up and ongoing care!
