"Fibroid Surgery"

I will like to thank all the staff at the Rivers Hospital. Thank you for taking such good care of me during my recent hospital stay. The nurses and Doctors were so nice, hardworking and pleasant. Before Rivers hospital, I have already been referred to two different Hospitals for a year and a half but no Surgeon wanted to do the surgery as I was told the risk involved is very high. I was given so many hospital appointments but did not get any help. I lost hope decided to give up and stop attending any further hospital appointment. I was in so much pain and was admitted three times last year in A&E. One day, a friend of my contacted and informed me to come to the Rivers hospital and mentioned that, there are very experienced surgeons who will be able to help me. I informed my GP and finally got referral in less than a week. My first appointment with the doctor was the best. After a year and a half and numerous hospital appointments, he was the only Surgeon who was willing to carry out the surgery for me. The doctor was so helpful, and reassured me before the operation. He also gave me lots of information and explained the procedure into details. I had my surgery on the 13th of January 2014 with no complications. I will like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to the doctor. My family and I will never forget what you’ve done for us. May God Bless You.
