Patient Comments (1)

. Didn't even come out and talk to my husband after surgery. In hospital 4 days and did not see him once. He called to see if I was rating and how I was doing. I wasn't eating but head nurse told him I ate 85% of my meals. I did not get up enough and ended up with bed sores on my butt and back....more
