Re: Your First Experience of Hospital
I would absolutely NOT let a nurse leave me for a shower again either-I dropped my clothes on the wet floor and panicked. Then when I went to pull the emergency cord I went faint and nobody came so I had to shout through the crack of the door, I almost passed out. I obviously wasnt ready.
I asked for anti sickness meds in the morning before my surgery-told a little white lie and said I had a phobia of bing sick. I must have been topped up the whole time because I never felt sick once. A few on my ward were being sick though.
Thoracic 72 degrees, lumber 30 degrees-fused aged 44, T2-L4, posterior fusion with costoplasty (8 ribs were chopped) on 3/11/10 under the care of Mr Ahmed at North Staffs Hospital. Now nice and straight
