"Fibroid removal and hysterectomy Feb 2016"

About: Bmi - The Meriden Hospital

I attended for 5 days

I was really apprehensive re this procedure due to having a very large fibroids .. Careplan from the get go was very thorough and explained fully .. pain management and concerns were asked about and discussed with me with the surgeon and anethatist with me being able to give my views and thoughts and fears

My room was very clean well laid out and perfect for my stay ..with wi fi and TV with multiple free view channels made it home from home

Had op two and a half hrs after I arrived everything fully explained .. By nurse who wheeled me down to theatre

I woke up after procedure having had a hystroctomy and a large fibroid weighing 2k removed pain management was great with morphine wrist device fitted ..so I had moderate discomfort and this defiantly helped my recovery .. Nurses / staff were very attentive and gave me good care doing all of the necessary checks throughout the day and night and monitoring my pain and managing it accordingly with a pain medication .....my room was cleaned well daily during my stay and the meals provided were brilliant !! Got to say the meals and the kitchen staff were great and again this all aided to my recovery .. It was identified that I had to have two blood transfusions and this was fully explained etc etc prior to the procedure.. My discharge was completed I didn't feel rushed everything fully explained and medication given

Physio staff also popped in during my stay and offered appropriate advice

I have to say that I couldn't have asked for more during my stay and glad I have the ability to go private (it's worth it)

The only thing I will note during my stay is that my visitors were not challenged and able to walk into my room , and my room was left open when I was in surgery .. Just think that security could be better .

Reception staff and car park staff were also very helpful and polite during my visits ..pre and post op
