"Surgical procedure"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

The removal of moles and cysts went extremly well until i had to sit up and get off the operating table.The table collapsed in on itself and i fell into the hole.At the time i was still feeling the affects of the aneasthetic and after everyone stopped laughing was asked if ok and i said yes.When igot home thats when i felt pain in lower back and legs where i had hurt when fell i therefore am not happy at the outcome and would recommend that saftey in operating room be checked more carefully and will take advice from a solicitor
