What I liked
I have just returned home after a two day stay for a unicompartmental knee replacement. My thanks go to the surgeon. and his team and all the nursing staff on Amesbury ward, especially the carer who looked after me as I was coming round from a general anaesthetic. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
What could be improved
The attitude of an over zealous nurse who was very insistant that I leave hospital after 48 hours.
I had the advice of a pain management nurse which wasn't available for the first knee operation last year. As a consequence, I have been in considerably less pain than last time.
