"Care at Angliss Hospital"

About: Angliss Hospital

(as the patient),

I had a number of gynaecological procedures at Angliss Hospital recently. I woke up after the operation crying, shaking and sick. I had a lot of doctors and nurses in the theatre and the student nurse was great, she also held my hand as I fell asleep. This is my third operation and this was the best one, best recovery, last time I was sick for four days after as the anesthesia made me ill.

I don't remember a lot as I went to sleep or when I woke but everyone in the pre-op theatre and recovery was so kind to me. They made me pain-free. I went in at around 11.30 and came home at 6.30 in time to see my favourite TV shows. All the doctors and nurses I saw were wonderful.

I also had to visit the Emergency Department and had to stay when I had lots of blood loss. Thank you, Angliss Hospital for taking care of me and my women's health problems recently.
