About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

I visited Diana princess of Wales hospital for a tonsillectomy mid December, It was originally planned for me to be staying on the ward but due to poor organisation and lack of staff and room I got moved to day surgery after several hours of waiting. I dealt with 2 weeks of severe pain (10/10) post op and being in and out of hospital due to excessive pain and complications thinking it would be worth it as I would no longer suffer with my tonsils in the long run. I have been to the GP today to be told that the surgery was not performed correctly and that my tonsils have already grown back no longer than a month after surgery. I shall now be more than likely waiting another couple of months to be even seen by my consultant again.
