I had a laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication operation, because of an Hiatus Hernia.
The surgeon and theatre staff were brilliant, and so were most of the nurses. The only worry I had was went one nurse came round with the medication and could not have read the notes properly. All my medication had to be soluble for me to swallow, one nurse who seemed in a hurry, started to give me paracetamol (hard tablets) until I pointed out to her I could not swallow. This could have been very painful had I not realised and told her.
The Surgeon was very good and nurses too on the whole.
Maybe patients are sent home too soon now though.
