Dear Mr Connell
Thank you for doing such a splendid job. I find it hard to believe that only a week ago you removed my ovaries and a 20cm cyst. After the first 3 days I had no pain or discomfort – I put this down to your surgical skills.
The doctor put me very much at ease, I had total confidence. Thank you.
A difficult procedure made easier by kindness.
Not only was the doctor lovely but the nurse with him was absolutely wonderful.
