Firstly I went to Maple ward for a pre-op assessment appointment was at 1pm, after seeing a lot of staff congregated in one room eating I got seen at 2pm with no apology. Then on day of my op was asked why I took one of my diabetic tablets that I shouldn't, but was not told no to. (communication problem) when seeing the Dr, he had left the previous patients details on the computer, and left us in room on our own for a few mins, this surely is a breech of data protection, I could see name, address etc, it was hard to miss. Anyway, once I came round from my op at 1030 I never got any food or drink untill 1:15. A few hours later by which time my drip had finished ages ago, I was asked why I had not got up to walk around, my drip was attached to a device on the wall... I explained this and was told it would be removed, a hour later still not removed and was asked again why I hadn't moved around, seriously could they not see why. Then I was asked if my pain killers were kicking in to which I replied "i havnt been given any".
