ABOVE: Waiting for Surgery
I was admitted to hospital on the 1st November 2013 for a Hernia repair operation. Admission was at 7.30am and the the actual surgery occurred at about 11.30am. Surgery lasted somewhere between 1 and 1.5 hours. There was a bit of a laugh when I changed into the gown provided as I didn’t have a clue as to how to put it on. The end result was that I had it on back to front.
I was in hospital for 3 days, during which time I was able to walk about the very next day and read quite a few ebooks. Of course there was some pain and discomfort, but nowhere near as much as was expected – thankfully.
The Hunter Valley Private Hospital at Shortland proved itself to be a wonderful place to be for the attention and care required during my stay. Hospital food was good and the nursing staff were brilliant and very kind – especially Hannah, Lyndel and Helen.Thank you for your kindness and professional services.
