    Ok everything went well until after the operation. I had to call three times for painkillers and was sent home with none. I was advised to go to my local clinic on the way home which I did and because it was a local holiday the staff i had been dealing with weren't there so i didn't receive the care i should have. So i had a very painful couple of days which I am still not happy about. Since then they have been brilliant but i feel very let down by the lack of pain medication afterwards
