"I had a decompression/laminectomy"

About: BMI - Thornbury Hospital (Sheffield)

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed with a prolapsed disc. I couldn't walk, so the doctor was called out. Other than the fact that I feel pain relief could have been sorted faster before my op (which didn't happen until I was in agony), I couldn't really fault anything. I was well looked after and was seen much quicker than I have been in the NHS before. My overnight stay was pleasant. Overall, I am happy with the treatment I had, I was well looked after.
