"Shoulder and knee"

I have had my shoulder operation here last yr and all went well.the specialist is fantastic always happy always welcoming and explains everything to you, couldnt askfor a better specialist.

I also see another specialist at this hospital who also a very good, i had a knee operation here last year that went well, and now i am going in at the beginning of October for a knee replacement, my only concerns is like a few others is the nurses, i had one nurse who i couldnt understand anything they were saying to me,i woken up from my operations felling not to good, i am diabetic and not eaten for hrs was not felling good, i was given a sandwich and cup of tea((no sugar levels checked)). But when i had woken up the second time, nurse seemed in a hurry to get me out the bed and picked up to go home .so im hoping when i go in for my knee replacement next mth the care after my operation will be good..
