"never again"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Anything else?

No problem with the surgeon,but the theater technicians had trouble trying to administer General Anesthetic a strait forward procedure they could not carry out. Twice i got off the operating table and told them not to proceed any further, not just because of the pain, but because i was frightened of them damaging my spine.They called for extra staff and had to use gas to put me under for the operation.
