All of the treatment I have had has been great except at one point.
Both times I came round after operations in a recovery room were traumatic.
Once at Spire Gatwick and once at East Surrey.
At Spire I was shaking and became scared as no one was talking to me or showing any care, A nurse sitting nearby and I had to alert the nurse that I was concerned because I was shaking. The nurse went to get a bag to warm me up, but otherwise did not speak or reassure me. It took ages to be taken down to the ward.
At East Surrey the recovery room was so noisy. Nurses were talking loudly and the door was constantly banging. No one spoke to me or reassured me but talked loudly and cheerfully about their holidays. I expect that they thought that was reassuring but I just wanted to shout shut up. Maybe I should have.
It would have been nice to come round to a gentle voice saying my name and that it was all over, I was in recovery and I would be ok as I have experienced in the past.
