Default 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.
