"Key hole surgery femal care"

About: Ashford Hospital

Anything else?

I was due to have my operation on January the 16th

I starved my self for over 24hrs for the operation for

A nurse on the kennington ward to tick the not pregnant

Box with out doing a pregnancy test! After waiting all

Day for my operation I was told by the anithatist that

They would not put me to sleep with out the pregnancy test

This was done in theatre( negative) for the surgeon to say

It was to late to perform the operation as they did not

Want to rush it, they were very apologetic as were their staff

I was sent home distraught and still shaking with nerves

To be called in the next day and have to do it all

Again, this time the operation was a success but the

Registra was less that helpful coming to talk

To me 20 minuets after waking from the operation all groggy

And not understanding what was going on!

I was less than impressed with the whole ordeal
