"Full Hysterectomy Nov 2012"

About: Cannock Chase Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was in ward 8 late last year. I had a Full- Hysterectomy and I found no worries about the operation or the after-care, although slightly confused that I was let out only after three days as I had prepared myself for at least a week or so.

I am very lucky as it turned out to be the beginning of Ovarian Cancer, which my consultant believes is all out, but I've still got to have four month blood-tests.

Thank you to those who operated on me and cared for me.

The only objective worry I have is the fact that patients are now allowed to go out of the ward and walk around the hospital etc. I don't think that should be allowed as it brings back maybe illness from other areas or they even make themselves worse.
