I was admitted to Day Surgery at 7am for Sacrocolpopexy. I was seen by my Nurse who checked all my drugs and past problems. I was then seen by one of the surgeons, a very genial man who told me again what was going to be done. Then I met the anaesthetist, also a very genial lady who put me at my ease instantly.
I was taken to a side ward and prepared for my surgery. I then lay on my bed and read my book, very relaxed and ready for my op.
I had 2 students to ask me my history and one of them asked me to sign a paper allowing him to give me an internal exam under the instruction of the surgeons.
After I was finished and delivered to Daphne ward, I continued to receive the very best nursing care.
After a good night, (very quiet in ward) I was seen by Mr Slack and his team. He told me I could go home that day if I passed water, I did.
The morning was taken up by Sister Heather. She told me all I needed to know.
She registered me with a company I will get my catheters from. I received a delivery the day after I got home. Amazing, she was looking after so many other ladies as well as me.
I can't praise every one enough. The whole team are incredible.
Mr Slack is at the very top of the tree with Heather just below. Thank You all
