About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital Royal Hallamshire Hospital Sheffield S10 2JF
I was admitted to N2 ward on Friday 7th August following an MRI scan that morning.
I was called at home by the Consultant Neurosurgeon and told that upon viewing the results of my MRI that had been passed to them by the Radiologist, I had to have a Lumbar Disc removed via Emergency Surgery due to the severity of its prolapse and risk of permanent damage.
I had surgery performed at 4pm on Saturday 8th August.
I left the following day.
I went into the hospital in a wheelchair in chronic pain and walked out of the hospital.
The standard of care was excellent throughout the entire process and I can’t thank N2 ward, and all the team involved enough for caring for me so well and for the success of the surgery.
The team are a credit to the NHS.
