"Aftercare regarding sons op"
Posted by Jsmammyx (as ),
My son went to have some metal work removed from his forearm. It was day surgery so we were only there from 7. 30am-3pm.
My son went into theatre at 10am & was back on the childrens ward for 11. 30am. The nurse who kept taking his temp/blood pressure was brill. The play nurses were fantastic. I felt my son was looked after in regards to entertainment wise.
However, we saw NO doctor/surgeon whatsoever before we left. We didn't hear how the op went, whether there was any problems, whether it went to plan, what to do after, whether the holes left in his bones were ok, how long it would take for them to heal etc. the only thing we got told was to remove my sons bandages after 2 days & was given an appointment card to return for his stitches removed.
