What I liked
The fact I was getting the operation.Pre op I was given all the information I required from those concerned and had complete confidence in the outcome.
What could be improved
Post op at no time did I get any advice on after care no one told me to take any care in what I should do ie neck movements/ lifting/exercises/having a bath/driving/sort of time scale thatI could expect some sort of relief or get back to near normal.If I had not asked no Physio was due to come and see me,in fact I sorted that out myself.Just a pamphlet with some do`s and dont`s and basic exercises would at least have helped.
Nothing was said about a return visit for a check up it`s now into the 4th week and I still haven`t heard anything.
