"Nervous patient really please with my treatment"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

The anaesthetist was really thorough and gave me a good insight into what he was going to do.

Im nervous around needles and the anaesthesis team were lovely with me and helped me through it.

The surgeon spoke to me before and checked nothing had changed.

When i woke up i had one on one care when i was coming round. This really helped me.

When on the day ward afterwards they helped me with collection difficulties with the parking and explained the drugs to my wife as i wasnt with it.

Only thing i didnt know is that they would cut the inside of my cheek. Makes sense when you think about it but not being able to open my mouth i was worried by the glue. I didnt know if something was wrong with it.

The job they did was very neat.
