"good to start with, untill they wanted my bed, so..."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

What I liked

i like that the surgery went good, and the main care straight after in recovery.

What could be improved

the ting that could of been improvedon, was including me in the decision making about myself. i was not included and when i aired my views about being in a hell of a lot of pain, and that they wouldnt get me my usual painkillers all because they didnt want to go off the ward to get it, they wouldnt even help me, even when i was stood in front of them crying my eyes out in pain, they just sent me home with painkillers that dont work, the very same day and that was that. i had to go to my drs when im supposed to be on bedrest, to get my usual painkillers. i am not happy at alll, the anesthistist wouldnt even listen to me and what i was saying, it went in one ear and out off the other. not happy at all.
