"Impressed by emergency gall bladder surgery"
Posted by Beatrix Potter (as ),
Arrived at A&E East Surrey, Redhill @ 6am with severe upper abdominal pain. Immediately triaged and into the department and from there the care was amazing. Can't tell you how impressed and delighted I am.
Soon diagnosed with gall stones, pain relief administered (thank goodness!) and moved to. A room on Brook ward where yet more terrific care and service was received.
Mr James arrived the next morning to advise immediate removal - in emergency theatre - 50/50 chance of a slot. At 5pm I was in theatre and discharged the following day.
What an astonishing experience - scary, yes, but once in hospital felt in confident in good hands throughout. Truly the NHS at it's best.
On a poor note - the food was grim, nil by mouth was a blessing ; ))
