"The speed at which I was seen. ..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

(as the patient),

What I liked

The speed at which I was seen. Incredible.

What could be improved

Being told by a Doctor that I have been discharged yet I have 3, yes 3 Hernias 1 in my chest, 1 above my navel and 1 in my umbilical, ok understandably I'm overweight, not terribly, however I was told that I have lost 2 BMI Points in the last six months, my body build is genetic.

Anything else?

I was also told that if I had an operation now they would come back bigger, how can anyone define this unless they plan on ruining an operation?

1 I have been 17st for more than 6 yrs.

2 I have tried alsorts of diets none have worked for me.

3 Now I'm starting to lose weight how can they possibly come back?
