Went to Raigmore hospital to have a total hip replacement on 27 nov 2017 it was done by Doctor/ surgeon Macleod ( great easy going bloke ) as were his whole team ,they tried their best to make sure you were ok as to them it's no bother but to me it was a total nightmare, it would have been much better if I had not listened to the silly horror stories that people had told me and don't look it up on utube either , I was taken 3rd on the list , the waiting is a nightmare ,wish I had been darted in the car park like a wild animal lol ,as I was so so dreading the whole experience as I had never been in hospital before,, went for the operation and never felt a thing so don't listen to the nightmare stories as there all lies ,everyone tries there best to make sure your ok , the surgeon has been back round to check on me a few times , he is so chilled out , I know he does lots of hip replacement and it's no big deal to him but was massive deal to me ,. I really don't understand how such a caring team of people who really go above and beyond to make sure you ae fine were all brought together , a lot of other industries need to follow the same approach to their work as it would make the world a better place to live ,. So point being listen to the staff not the people who are going around talking rubbish , my time here has been great , so not what I was expecting , don't know if I want to go home as it feels like I have 50 wives here running around trying to do everything for me lol . I've only written this as I don't want anyone else to be a stressed out about getting their hip done as I was , feel stupid now as it was no big deal after all . .
