I slipped and fell in January and fractured my distal radius in the joint. It was a complicated fracture requiring surgery and a plate and screws. I waited 6 days for surgery but this was partly due to the need for tests and scans to plan the complex reconstruction. I went in for day surgery but had to remain over night because they wanted to keep an eye on me. Day surgery ward staff were amazing - kind and caring. Anaesthetist was wonderful - I was terrified but he put me t ease and the surgeon was excited by the work he had done and was proud of the repair. All in all an excellent experience.
