What our patients think...
The first week after the operation was a very trying time for me and psychologically a very difficult transition having a stoma bag fitted. However a trying time made a lot easier thanks to the care and support offered by Mr Radley and Mandy and I know that thanks to Mr Radley’s surgical skills I have not been in any pain since my operation. ”
