"Problem at operation"

The staff at circle bath are very good the hospital is clean and the food fine My operation was a knee replacement which was my second one my other knee being done one year earlier with no problems and excellent after care, however this was not at circle bath I was wide awake during the latter part of my operation and could hear all that was being said by doctors and staff which was rather frightening and was then shocked to discover that I had my wound treated with dissolvable stitches not clips as previous The wound has still not healed and is being treated by my local treatment nurse and looks like it could be a long process I also feel quite depressed and feel that this is also a result of this traumatic operation It may or may not be the case but I feel as I was a NHS patient I was not as important as private. When I left hospital I was told I would get a follow up call from the hospital but I never did
