What I liked
Pain relief was available immediately and I was extremely well looked after and involved in my care.
What could be improved
Initial appointment with Gynaecologist was disappointing. Although it was agreed I needed a hysterectomy I wasn't given any further information or asked if I had any questions, which I did. Just told to make an appointment for biopsy. Second appointment with different Gynaecologist was much more successful. All questions answered to my complete satisfaction - lovely lady who also carried out my op.
Could possibly have had more information on how to clean wounds on discharge ( one of which was vaginal stitching - very painful but obviously needed cleaning).
Also, was issued with ferrous sulphate tablets (28) due to anaemia but not told if I would need to see a doctor for further supply or if the one box was sufficient. Probably should have asked myself with hindsight.
