Spent Saturday night in the LGI after dislocating my collar bone in a riding accident. Waited hours before I got any painkillers and because the doctor didn't see me till 3am they wouldn't give me my sleep meds. I was in a ward with 5 others and one of the machines kept bleeping but nobody came so I called the nurse. It was a warming that her oxygen was empty. Did the patien thank me for this no. Instead , she bitched about me loudly to everyone else on the ward from 7 am and their to their visitors and then her husband. Didn't have the energy to argue and was in too much pain so I just stuck my
Nose in the air and she proclaimed to her husband that you could tell what kind of person I was-,Morticia over there and that i couldn't leave fast enough for their liking. I felt so isolated I was so relieved when they said I could go home.
I have to go back to outpatients tomorrow and they might be putting me under to manipulate the bone sticking out of my neck like the bride of Frankenstein. Op is risky and I'm a bit scared i might...well you know! If its successfulI just hope I don't end up on the same ward!
