Fantastic care given pre op and during surgery, an amazing team, worked well to make me feel at ease and relaxed as was very nervous. However aftercare on gynaecology daycare was awful. I was left from 10.30 am until 3 pm before being checked on post op. insulin diabetic, bloodsugar was never checked no water offered, had a spinal so couldn't move, no call button as was out of reach on the wall. Nobody asked if I needed the toilet. Was left to figure out when spinal had wore off by dragging the chair over so I could try and get up. No pain relief given even when distressed. By the time my husband came to pick me up I was in floods of tears, no compassion shown, when husband asked for a wheelchair he was told to go and find one.
