#sayThankYou

Hello It is now 6 weeks since you operated on my lung and I am making slow but steady progress with my recovery. I have heard from the team at Royal Lancaster Infirmary that all is well. I am very grateful to you and your team. Your return to see me on Sunday morning after the mix-up of appointment times was especially kind and thoughtful ! With my very best wishes. Sheila Mallin

I am a recently discharged patient of Professor Bittar, having had a video assisted VATS upper lobectomy and excision of lymph nodes for an adenocarninoma. Throughout my patient episode I have had complete confidence in Professor Bittar and his team at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. His pleasant manner and informative style helped me personally deal with my cancer in a positive way.

From the initial consultation, I felt I was made aware of everything I needed to know about the operation I was to have (triple bypass), and the recovery period. If I forgot anything, or something new occurred to me, his Secretary, Mrs Rampley, was on hand to answer these queries. The operation went with as little drama as I could hope for. Mr Bittar checked up on my progress throughout those early days, and was sympathetic to my desire to get back home to be with my family for my recovery. So I was allowed home on the 7th day of the process. I have to say, at this point, that the nurses and other staff at Royal Victoria Hospital, Blackpool, were awesome! So friendly and approachable. So hard-working, but always there to offer the help I may have needed. Physio was introduced when I was ready, and was at a sufficient level to build confidence that my recovery was indeed on the way. I felt in good hands throughout this short spell in Hospital, thanks to Mr Bittar and the entire medical team.

Mr Bittar was very considerate from the first consultation until the last. He explained what procedure was needed and what I could do to recover quickly after the operation. My experience within Blackpool Victoria hospital was first class and I would recommend this hospital to anyone needing a similar operation.

I was diagnosed with lung cancer in May 2019. A Pre op meeting with Mr Bittar was arranged, for myself and family. I and my family were obviously scared and worried as it was quite a big tumour. Mr Bittar put us all at ease with his manor, he explained everything that would happen And to trust him. I cannot thank him and his team enough , The care and treatment from the hospital medical staff was amazing. I have now finished all treatment and have been given the all clear and have returned to work after 10 months. My eternal thanks to Mr Bittar and the entire team. God bless you all.
