Shame that the pre-op cannot be done by one nurse, this would save having to see 4 nurses on the day and spending half a day there. When the appointment date was sent, no information enclosed about what was going to happen and what to expect. Discharge - came out with no guidance on how you should feel, and what to expect. No do's and don'ts. No wonder so many people end up in A&E after being discharged. Was old to have pain killers for 5 days, only given 3days worth, so had to argue with GP surgery to get them urgently. If people were given the correct amounts and guidance, this would save the stress of family members having to get the GP's involved. Someone should look at nth of the above, which would save a lot of nhs resources!
