" I appreciated the care and the food after breast cancer mastectomy"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

I was in 5 days on ward 2

the first couple of days I was so upset emotionally if anyone had asked about my stay I would have been very negative. from the third day onwards when I was feeling a little stronger I was able to really appreciate the care, the food etc.

I think that the drugs (which were necessary) left an awful taste in my mouth, so other patients who had a shorter stay wouldn't appreciate the care or the food in such a short time. But once you get used to being there, you realise how good they are.
