Should I be worried or should I just keep waiting? watch

    My boyfriend has gone in hospital for an operation he is staying overnight for surgery on his shoulder (which was planned for this morning so he will be recovering now) and I'm picking him up tomorrow, I'm going to be looking after him a little. He has no family around him to visit. I texted him 2 hours ago but he hasn't replied. I'm wondering if he can text with having arm surgery but most people can with one hand and the anasthetic has probably wore off by now. I just want to know he is ok, do you think I should just wait a few more hours to see if he texts? I mean I can't ring the ward as I don't know which one he will be on exactly.

    It may be worth ringing them up to see if you can be directed to the right place.

    Well, from experience, they usually have you strip down into nothing but the gown and you have nothing on person. After the process, you are then transferred elsewhere (with other patients post surgery I assume) whilst under anaesthetic, and once you're up and given the green light - you are then taken back to the waiting room with the nurses (where all your belongings are). Imo it would probably be best to wait a while longer, or perhaps his battery died or something.
