"Spinal surgery"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted and taken in very quickly with L5S1 very large prolapsed disk!

After 15 days of being discharged I was awoken to serious and severe back pain!

I had an infection which was caused by surgery!

After 4 MIR scans and three operations during the Christmas and new year period!

It was at a point in my life which I realised this is a serous matter!

My after care about support has been very good apart from my physiotherapy from MK hospital which has been a disaster!

Because of this my recovery time back to work has been extended over two/three months!

I strongly feel that the physiotherapy department clearly does not prioritise patients that clearly need more support and after care which is highly required!

Ward 21 was excellent.
