"Excellent results following foot and ankle..."

About: The Great Western Hospital

Once again had the delight to have surgery performed. I had surgery following a problem I had following my surgery in 2005. I had 4 seperate procedures within one operation.

I must stress the problem I had was in no way a result of the work that the consultant did.

Everyone who I came into contact with was friendly and polite and I am thrilled with the results.

The only negative I would say is that following the operation my foot wasn't at any point raised to help with swelling and the cast was too tight. Also the pain relief was no where near strong enough.
