I am now 6 months post a total hop replacement at Wrightington..
After a few months of pain and discomfort my replacement has now settled down and I am completely happy with the outcome and my treatment, the staff were excellent and professional.
My only issue is that I never saw or had any communication with my consultant surgeon, either pre or post operation.
I shall not name the surgeon, as my operation was a success..But I am still mystified at the lack of patient/surgeon communication. Possibly it was the result of my op being scheduled for a Friday? ...any explanation from the hospital management team regarding this issue would be gratefully accepted.
Please understand this is not intended as a criticism of the hospital itself.
