"Mastectomy"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Anything else?

I was offered pain relief when first knocked out for my Mastectomy which I agreed to. When I came to no pain relief had been put in place. I was in severe pain. It took a while for them to set up Morphine. This was barbaric! The whole ward was manic. The Nurses could hardly cope. It was all about getting you out as the bed was wanted. Visiting time became a circus with no check on visitor numbers per bed. Resulting in noise and as many as 6 plus buggy and baby round a bed not leaving until after 10pm. This used to be a good Hospital but I personally don't ever want to return.
