"Bladder operation"

About: Nuffield Health, North Staffordshire Hospital

I was admitted to Nuffield September 2014, to remove a tumour in my bladder,the treatment said two nights, I was discharged after one night the catheter was taken out, and sent home with pain killers, 48 hours later I had a blockage and could not pee, this was due to blood clots and tissue from the operation, my local hospital said that they would not have removed the catheter after one night, to relieve the blockage I had another catheter fitted and that was in for nine days, To sum up I would not recommend Nuffield that was a very expensive 24hours and the treatment was not followed up, I was discharged to early and the blockage was very painful, I had better treatment in my local hospital
