DEAR DEIDRE: I CAN’T shed a tear for my wife who has passed away.
I’m so full of anger because her death should never have happened.
She went into hospital to have nodules removed from her throat.
It was supposed to be a simple operation but the surgeon nicked an artery or vein in her neck. The mistake led directly to her death.
We’ve been married for 26 years. She was 62 and I’m 65.

I’ve had compassionate leave from work and I’m getting some help from the medical ombudsman after I made a complaint, but everything is moving so slowly.
I am really struggling and there’s not much fight left in me, but I feel I should try to get justice for my wife.
