Patient of the Month

Benson October 2020

Following CT diagnostics, Benson was diagnosed with a tumour on his maxilla (upper jaw). This needed to be surgically removed which involved not only removing the tumour, but a large portion of the maxilla with it!!

This surgery was incredibly complex and we even needed blood products on standby so we could administer a transfusion if necessary!!

Surgery was successful and Benson made an amazingly quick recovery in hospital – he was even eating his breakfast ‘with gusto’ the morning after so we were happy to send him home to fully recuperate.

Benson was wonderful to nurse – so brave and loved a cuddle!
