"Cyst removal at Day operation ward in Urology"
About: Southmead Hospital Southmead Hospital Bristol BS10 5NB
I had a cyst removed from my testicle in the day operation ward. The following day I was in a lot of pain and discomfort and had a large swelling. I took my pain killers as directed but it did not help the pain. I tried to contact the department because I felt that the procedure had not worked for me and the stiches were weeping and it seemed that the stitching was sewn incorrectly. I tried to ask about my results at both my own doctors and hospital but was told that the notes were in a different department. I have had two ultrasound scans because I had an infection and had to take strong penicillin. I have also had a consultation with the surgeon who says that he felt that all was ok and that if I had another operation I would lose my testicle. I still feel that the sewing up was not done right as I get discomfort and a pulling from the new stitching. I am not the sort of person who keeps making complaints but in this case I do feel let down.
