i had surgery to remove two lumps from my breast back in January time. I felt the nurses were very pushy and rude, I am under the age of 18 and i was very anxious about having the Op in the first place. I struggled trying to swallow the tablets they gave me but just became rude and impatient while watching me. I was finally ready to go down to theatre when i started to feel abit sick where i was so nervous i repeatedly asked for my mum to come down with me to make me feel at ease but refused even when i did get abit teary. I was 16 years old at the time and for her even to just walk down would of been a massive help for me and no hassle for them. once i was in (still sobbing) the surgeon and another two nurses led me down and gave me some reassurance which none else had and before i knew it i was conked out. Generally think they were very rude and did not take one bit of notice of how i was feeling. especially as being this young i would of expected more.
