Nurses were amazing, in particular Denise who looked after me on my day of surgery (27/11/20). The only area I would want to see improvement on is more emphasis on what you can and cannot do post surgery, you do get some of this but I always had lots of questions (but then that's maybe just me wanting to know everything to be prepared for every eventuality). Nothing really prepares you for this enough as in what you need to stock up on, like more compression socks, laxatives, physical activity etc. I think because you are so out of it on the day your physio/ nurse sees you and tells you this stuff you forget so should be maybe considered on follow up call which I did receive to be fair however there were still some things that I was not sure about like how long do I need my dressing on for, when can I shower, bath etc.
