"gallbladder removal"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I entered Medway in December 2015. with stomach pains. Was my gallbladder. The care was good though I wasn't actually told I was discharged until a nurse gave me pills and said - stay for your lunch. The ward packed with old women and no-where to go.

When I got home I had to 'start again' by seeing my GP to arrange my gall bladder removal. I waited 9 months to the day.

So I've had it removed.

The nursing was good and caring & efficient., it was very clean everywhere,

But I stayed in the recovery room as there were no beds. It seems Medway are getting back on top of things, I never felt nervous of being in there. I know people who wont step inside the doors.

There's a way to go for them.

I think they'll get to the top.
