"I have no idea what my operation fixed"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I recently was admitted on the surgical day case unit for hand/wrist surgery. I stayed overnight on a ward and found it to be very clean.

Staff were wonderful from the start to the end of my treatment. My only complaint i have is that i have had fairly major surgery and my surgeon did not come to see me after the operation to explain what work had been done. I have no idea what has been fixed or what has not.

I just feel a little upset that i have left the hospital not knowing much. I dont know if this is normal procedure. I would still recommend this hospital.
