What I liked
I was being treated for a post-incisional hernia that occured after surgery at another hospital. At Leighton, the consultant gave me clear information. The operation went well. The nursing care was excellent. I didn't get any infections and my wound healed very quickly.
What could be improved
I could have done with more information about what would happen when I returned home in terms of what I should and should not do. I am a vegetarian and the food was terrible and there was very little choice.
When I arrived at Leighton there was no bed free and I had to wait four hours in the day room for a bed to become available. As I was feeling quite nervous about the operation, this added to the stress quite a lot.
