I went into Queen Victoria hospital East Grinstead at the end of September 2015 to have a delayed bilateral Diep reconstruction. I would just like to express my thanks and gratitude to the whole team who were fantastic. I felt so special and cared for from the time that I arrived in the hospital to the time that I left. It was a very long operation and I was absolutely petrified but the medical team and staff made me feel very much at ease with each member of staff giving me a step by step explanation as to what they were going to do and who I would be seeing next. The anaesthetist was fantastic as I was quite anxious about being put to sleep but they explained exactly what was going to happen which really did help me relax after that. A very nice person. All in all I found the whole team and hospital staff superb. My operation was a true success which I am over the moon with and can't thank the surgeon and team enough for giving me back a body that now looks "normal". They are perfection - both the surgeons that operated on me and my new breasts. The hospital and the ward (Margaret Duncombe) with all the caring staff were brilliant. So I would like to say a very big thank you to you all.
