"My life has changed for the better"

About: Crosshouse Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

After about 15 years of progressive pain and feelings of suffocation I finally was offered a hernia repair by Mr Robertson who spoke to my respiratory doctor Mr Pitman after I had a spell in ICU. My life has changed for the better as I can now breathe!

Dear Lady in White,

I can only imagine how awful it must be when you can’t catch your breath and I am delighted to hear that you are better now. I will pass this to the Doctors involved so they know what a difference it has made to you and your life. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience.

Best wishes,
