"Was at the end of my tether!"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

I would like to express my gratitude to the staff a the royal surrey. I was recently admitted to the short stay ward. I had been less than pleased with the treatment of my gp and another hospital about my worsening condition and really was at my last straw. I was seen right away at a&e on Monday and all tests were done quickly and professionally where the condition I had was re confirmed. As the pain was worsening I was transferred to the short stay ward and operated on the following day where it was found that I had a torsion on my ovary and most of it had died ( something the other hospital failed to notice). However, they managed to save a third of it. I was released the following day after fantastic care, especially the kind male nurse in recovery, and with adequate pain relief. Finally after days of agonising pain it's over. Finally a competent doctor that essentially saved part of the ovary. I just can't imagine what I'd be like now if I didn't visit yourselves. Thank you very much. You have restored my faith in the nhs and you'll be the only hospital I'll trust to visit if needed.
