"First ever operation experience"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

I had my first ever operation yesterday (1st in 47 years, not bad going!). Had keyhole day surgery. So impressed and thankful to all the staff, who made my first experience go so smoothly.

I was so nervous and scared and all the staff were so caring and kind.

My gratitude & thanks to all.
