Just back from Leighton after a hip replacement I was invited to " Joint School" to see where Ward 9 is , to meet some of the people who would be helping me , to meet other people who were having similar ops and to learn about crutches and things .. This short session helped greatly to dispel my fear - Ward 9 wasn't the unknown when I went in On the morning pf my Op , I went in at 7am ,everybody , and I mean everybody , introduced themselves by telling me their name and called me by my name - I felt at home and it was all as light hearted and jocular as a serious process can be . Nothing was too much trouble - some requests were refused but for medical reasons They work as a team for the good of the patient Fantsic
