"Day surgery"

About: Royal United Hospital / Gynaecology

I had a laparoscopy, pleased with operation despite being cancelled the first date due to no bed availability, not good having to wait til 2pm to eventually be told no bed and no operation after not being able to eat or drink all day, plus all the arrangements that I had to put in place for my 3 children and husband took annual leave twice!
