It’s two weeks since my operation and we have to thank you, and your pal Da Vinci, for doing such a fantastic job. It is difficult to believe that one can have such major surgery and yet experience so little pain or discomfort.
I did not need any painkillers after a couple of days and I think those that were taken were “just in case.” I am feeling fit and well and am being actively discouraged from doing too much too soon!!

Everybody we came across at Addenbrooke’s gave us the impression that they cared. This was across the board starting with yourself, the other Doctors and Nurses, the staff bringing meals, the cleaners and we only had to look vaguely lost in the corridors and someone offered to help! A heart warming experience and without doubt somewhere we would strongly recommend to others.
