"Total knee re-constructive surgery"

About: The Whittington Hospital

As I have a small prostate, I asked to be catheterized before my procedure. My request was ignored and as a consequence I wet myself. As I was totally numb from the waist down, it took me 6 hours to realise I was soaking as no-one had checked me.

The person I left to look after my dog whilst in hospital let me down, so I had to excercise him myself. Post op, I had lost 20kg in weight. So after walking my dog, I was exhausted and consequently missed my physiotherapy appointment. I was taken off their list for physiotherapy and could not get an appointment again.
