i had a incision hernia operation in July 2015 and overall it was a positive experience. All the nurses I had contact with were very friendly and put me at ease, as I was quite nervous. The only issue I had was that I was told to remove the dressing and clean the wound myself, I would rather this be done by a medical professional, so I have made an appointment with my Surgery and a nurse will do this. It would also be helpful to a patient if information was provided in relation to bathing post the operation. Having sought advice I will now be using Johnsons all-in-one baby wash which is more gentler to the skin and the wound.
