"Knee replacement surgery"

About: Colchester General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted to Copford ward in January this year. My operation took place about 1pm and the next thing I remember I was back on the ward. I was very surprised the food was so good especially the broccoli and stilton soup. My overall experience of my three days in hospital was excellent. Everyone was so kind I'm sure most of my fellow patients felt the same. I would like to thank Mr Loeffler and his staff my knee is healing well and I am looking forward to getting back to the gym! !

Kind Regards
