Hospitals - Love Them Or Hate Them?

Some people don’t mind hospitals and operations; other people hate them or can find them (or even just the thought of them) frightening. Lots of people are somewhere in the middle. For some people it helps to know exactly what’s going to happen and in great details; others prefer just an outline (maybe how long the opertaion will take, where they’ll wake up, how long they’ll be there before they're back at home, school or work).

Talk to your parents and medcial team about what sort of things you want to know so that you can be prepared in the way that suits you best.
