I expected a day operation for a prolapse womb.
This turned unexpectedly into a full scale hysterectomy and cancer scare.
The ovaries were abnormal.
I was kept fully informed by the Consultant of their actions, reasons and the risk of cancer.
On the ward I was visited by the Keyworker nurse who explained the tests and promised to phone these through to me. Two anxious weeks followed but they phoned personally to tell me that the results were all clear. A letter of confirmation followed promptly.
Obviously I am relieved with the results but wanted to register my thanks to everyone involved for the professional and joined up manner I was dealt with - it helped a difficult situation.
