Two years ago I had some plates and screws fitted into my leg at Birmingham Children's Hospital. The staff there were amazing. But last week I had to have the plates and screws removed at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.
This was my first adult surgery and I was feeling very nervous. The staff were incredible at making me feel relaxed as my mum wasn't around to do that anymore.
They made sure I didn't feel lonely at any time and were extra attentive knowing that I was nervous and scared. I owe them a huge amount of respect and have a lot of admiration for them.
