"I was in yesterday for a laparoscopy ..."

What I liked

I was in yesterday for a laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy under general anaesthetic. I checked in at 7.45am and went into theatre for 10.30am. All the nurses were brilliant. Albeit you get one nurse assigned to you, they all work as a team. I was interviewed by the nurse, one of the surgeons, the aneasthetic doc and the person who wheels you up to the theatre. I felt much looked after. I was asked if I wanted a hot drink (tea or coffee) and a sandwich after my op. The nurses were very thorough. The ward was clean and tidy. What was really nice was that your partner can hang around until you are discharged. I got discharged at about 2.30pm. The nurses all smile and make sure you are alright. There are alcoholic dispensers on every bedside table.
