"Needed emergency care for amputated finger"

About: Wexham Park Hospital

I amputated my middle finger with the electric hedge trimmer on 21st may and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital to emergency who attended me ASAP and confirmed I would not lose my finger which was such a relief. I had an xray as finger was fractured and stitched my finger back on after giving me a local anasthetic and released within 4 hours. I had to have hand surgery 3 days later and the all the staff at the theatre were so caring and very supportive.

Since my operation I have been having weekly treatments for physio and again the staff have helped me so much to recover and get my hand back into action.

Recovery has been a long process but without all the care and support i received I would not have made the recovery.

Thank you so much to all the staff at WPH - I owe you all big time.
