"Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

After suffering with gallstones for some time and following a week long stay in may 2016 for an infected and inflamed gallbladder I was booked in for surgery to remove on 30th June 2016. I was nervous but the whole experience was made worry free and straightforward by the wonderful staff. On arrival at 7am booking in was easy and all the staff there on in were great.

I met my surgeon just prior to the op and was made to feel relaxed and at ease by all involved. After the op the nurses were fantastic and I was home by 6.30pm that evening. Thank you BVH!
