Laparoscopic rectiplexy Sacrocolpoplexy(including laparoscopic) Mr Shaikh and Mr Mukhopadhyay both operated on me at the same time, they were very, very good in their pre and post op care, the operation was very complicated and took longer than we expected, but so far, so good. Day one was pretty uncomfortable, being checked every hour for blood pressure, temperature, pulse, etc. Day two showered alone after quite a Good night, not too mobile but managed to walk to the bathroom, and managed it alone, scar quite uncomfortable but not too bad, day three sent home. First week very limited in doing anything for myself, went to GP and nurse removed clips from wound on tenth day, hadn't healed completely so had to visit GP every other day for redressing, week two much improved but still quite limited and having wound dressed. Dressings down to every other day. Week three improving every day, eventually told no dressings needed. Great news. Week four, feeling much more like my older self, still have to be careful on lifting, stretching etc but much more mobile. Must just remember not to do too much. Saw Mr Shaikh and he's told me that I am doing well and to take things easy as it's very early days, didn't realise what a big op this was. Can't fault Mr Shaikh and Mr Mukhopadhyay they have been amazing. Thank you guys.
Mr Shaikh was very welcoming and considerate right from my first visit. He discussed my options clearly with both me and my husband, even drawing a basic diagram to help us understand better. I am pleased to say that the operation he performed was a complete success.
Mr Shaikh was excellent, he had been advised that I was nervous and was very considerate of this in my treatment. Reassuring me all the time.
Mr Shaikh was excellent in his approach to my consultation, operation and post operative care. I am a nervous patient but my mind was put at rest, all the options and consequences were explained to me very well and I felt secure proceeding with the operation. Good attention to detail and reassurance during recovery when you sometimes have questions after your recovery.
Following consultation with Mr Shaikh I was required to have a colonoscopy with snare loop biopsy or excision of lesion. All this was explained to me in a calm, sympathetic manner with professional reassurance by Mr Shaikh. The results have been clearly given to me, and I have had only care and consideration shown, both during consultation and the diagnostic tests, and also by the staff at The Spire Hospital when the procedures were taking place.
