"Surgery success"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the consultants for performing my hysterectomy 31 October 2013. After an abandoned hysterectomy in 1999, resulting in a nasty infection and a pulmonary embolism, other consultants in Bassetlaw and Sheffield Hallamshire have been reluctant to offer me surgery. My condition worsened over the years until life had become unbearable rather than uncomfortable. These consultants have been my saviours, they carried out a total abdominal hysterectomy, with no complications. I had a large ovarian cyst, large fibroids and and enlarged uterus. There is no way I can thank them enough, they have given me my life back. I also extend my thanks to all the staff on Ward G5 for their excellent care during my stay in DRI.
