"I had an hand operation waited all day for the op."

About: St Michael's Hospital (Hayle)

The women are next door to the small kitchen where they are making tea and toast all day and you can not have anything until your op. I had a very painful injections worse in my life I though I would pass out. In the operating theatre I was told his assistant will do the op as my surgeon went off to have a cup of tea. I could not wait until I got out of there I never felt at ease or safe, My hand still has pins and needles.
