It must have looked like a butchers carving table when they had you open???
I did ask the surgeon if there were any pictures but he said he wouldn't show them to me even if there were. I suspect it's against the Hospital's policy. Believe it or not, I was home after just 6 days in in hospital due to their "accelerated recovery regime". They were absolutely fantastic at the Guildford RSCH - not at all like the stories you hear about the NHS.
