Once you have seen Miss Gill and you have made a decision that surgery is the correct treatment option for you, you will be given a date to be admitted to hospital for your operation. Normally Miss Gill will go through a consent form with you in the clinic, she will explain to you the risks and benefits of the procedure and the alternatives to surgery. These information leaflets are designed to allow you to read them at home, there is a lot of information to take in. It may be helpful to show them to your family too, especially if they were not with you when you saw Miss Gill.
These information sheets are designed to give you more information about what to expect from your operation. From the time of diagnosis and the treatment options available to you, to the day of admission to hospital and your recovery in the weeks and months after your surgery. Please take the time to read them carefully and get in touch if you have any questions.
