"Extensive shoulder surgery"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

I have surgery on my shoulder and stayed in hospital for 3 days. My surgery was excellent. A year on and I am pain free and have complete mobility. I am amazed and very grateful to my surgeon.

I had excellent follow up physio at Barncoose. My stay in hospital was less than satisfactory. I was in a lot of pain and there wasn't a clear plan for pain relief until the pain team visited. The nurses were very busy and I was left overnight without water. When I finally got water I got a jug but no cup so I had to drink out of the jug.
