"Post operative complications"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital / General surgery

(as a relative),

It's now 8 months since my husband had a major operation to remove a cancerous tumour. It seems like everything that could have gone wrong, has gone wrong. Internal leaks, wounds that took months to heal and debilitating back pain which is now worse than it was 6 months ago.

The staff are lovely but I feel that they are slow to take complaints of pain seriously. My husband said at one stage that he wishes he never had had the operation!

This is ongoing and is making our lives a misery.
