was suffering with severe pressure in my eye along with headache. I arrived at the hospital and was not seen by a doctor until 7.30 pm and a blood test was done but no pain relief given. At 9.00 pm was taken up to a waiting room on a ward as department closed to public. Was told at 10.30 pm that my bloods were back and I was next patient to be seen. This did not happen as a number of patients were called before me and I had been there for 5 hours longer than them. Finally seen doctor at 12.10 pm and discharged. I was given my first drink at 9.30 pm and during the 10 and a half hours waiting around was not offered anything to eat. If the hospital had kept me informed on what was going on the experience could have been a little better. Waiting times are not acceptable and it was very frustrating for everyone.
went into theatre around 3.50pm, i was ready to go home at 5pm. My surgeon and the results of the operation are amazing, i cannot thank this very competent surgeon enough, she is a very very nice, caring lady, i dont know how i can thank her and her team who were in theatre at the time enough, i would also like to say a big thank you to the staff who looked after me before and after the operation, thank you all very much. x
