"fears overcome after hip operaton"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

I have just had a total hip replacement operation and since I have a morbid fear of hospitals this was not a thing I was looking forward to However from the pre assessment right through to recovery I can only thank all concerned for the extra effort everyone gave to re assure me throughout each process The consultant, how can you thank someone who has taken away so much pain and made the simple task of walking so much better of their surgical team I was a total wreck before the operation but they relaxed me so much I was able to joke with them prior to the actual operation how can you measure that or find simple words to say thank you ward B1 room 11 the staff were first class and again my thanks go out to them and another member of staff was a real star nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure my recovery went well A Big thank you to all involved
