I have had incredible support from my family and friends. They have all pulled together to come up with visits, meals, messages and all sorts of displays of kindness. It would be unfair for me to list individuals, but everyone has made such a huge difference and helped aid my recovery- even when I was grumpy! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all.
I do not think that I would have been as confident or reassured about my surgery (pre and post op) if it wasn’t for my consultant, Mr Ahmed. Mr Ahmed made sure at the beginning at our initial meet that I understood all the options available to me and the implication of such surgeries. Mr Ahmed was not only thorough, but he made me feel relaxed and his fantastic personable approach put me at great ease. Even when I had daily problems with my drains and he had to be called in on a Saturday, I was never made to feel like I was a burden. A strong consultant that you have faith in, makes all the difference. I just wanted to publically say thank you to Mr Ahmed, Mr Cunnick and Fiona for all their hard work and commitment.
In addition, both my stays in hospital were made so much easier by the team on Ward 12A at Wycombe Hospital. All the doctors, sister, nurses and staff were amazing. They made me feel so welcome, supported, safe and reassured. Thank you.
