Finally had a rectocele repair done on 17th August after 2 cancellation. One due to incompetence of staff. Was booked in for 3 repairs. Told by surgeon a hysterectomy was needed on my first attempt of surgery on July 11th. When I returned for actual surgery with a different surgeon they decided, after examining me in what felt like a dimly lit broom cupboard. Just had a repeat rectocele repair. As I was coming round in recovery I could hear the nurse telling me to wake up as I was going home. I was told I was an inpatient. I woke bleeding with no packing, no catheter and a very full bladder. I had to wait til I was on the ward to finally go to the toilet. Bit more involved there but trying to keep short! The toilet was filthy. I bled on the floor and told the nurse who just left me to clean it up. I said I was very thirsty but no drinks were brought to me. After being left for approx an hour and a half with no nurse checking on me I had to call my dad to bring me a drink and take me home. Disgusting treatment from start to finish. I felt so traumatised fir a few days after my treatment.
