This is content from an email I sent to my mother, the day after my op.
Have to say - Nhs is Blumming amazing. I was so well looked after yesterday- had a whole ward to myself. I was first patient in at 9am - out by 12, And was checked up on by anaesthetists, surgeons and a registrar and looked after by 2 fantastic nurses. They were a bit alarmed when my heart rate dipped but I told them I'm really fit and it's a family trait! Also am a shallow breather.... Remember to breathe! !
Apart from slightly woozy... I slept for hours - until 5pm when husband came to collect me. He wheeled me out in wheelchair bless him.
They reckon 2 weeks for proper recovery - and that the pain starts when the drugs wear off! but for now feel fine, throat scratchy and looks foul - but hopefully this will be well worth it - and stop me getting tonsillitis and other nonsense so often and for so long!
