"My experience of planned Hospital admission and surgery."
Posted by yims (as ),
I was referred by my dentist for possible extraction of severely impacted wisdom teeth. I had an assessment appointment at Hairmyres NHS Lanarkshire and a pre-admission appointment at Monklands Hospital NHS Lanarkshire. Each of these was within the predicted timescale.
I was then admitted to Monklands Hospital in NHS Lanarkshire for the extraction of 3 wisdom teeth. I wish to advise of the POSITIVE experience I had during my short admission for this procedure. I was admitted and was taken down to surgery within 30 minutes (I know this won't be everybody's experience). I had surgery under General Anaesthetic which was a pretty relaxed experience and after a short period of recovery was discharged home. I wish to express that despite the horror stories I was furnished with by friends etc I had only a positive experience of my treatment.
A simple story however, in a culture of tearing apart public services and where all that hits the headlines is negative press I just feel that it is important to share the positive also.
