"My previous experiance was 30yrs ..."

About: Southlands Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked:

My previous experiance was 30yrs ago ,I had a laminectomy and some other scraping procedure which added to my pain.All I had inspite of my distress was 2 DF 118 painkilers every 4 hrs no ifs or buts! I had suffered for many months with a trapped nerve and was very low.Aftercare was fantastic with 8 weeks habilitation in the Wolfson Centre. So the idea of having a knee replacement was to say the least quite not relished but I neednt have worried the PAIN management was superb every concern was given at all times to my comfort.I am now 78 and cannot praise at Southalnds them enough,
