I didn't until recently remember anything at all about my stay in ICU, but I now little things are coming back to me. For instance when I was intubated and put in a medical coma I remember calling nurses and being totally ignored (not surprising I thought as they were the ones who were trying to kill me). Then later on I starting waving and a nurse who on my last visit back to the ICU I found out was the pharmacist came over and said I cannot talk to you because of the thing in your throat (I had no idea until I was told weeks later on the normal ward that I had been intubated) But as far as I was concerned I was talking to her and I just thought she was making excuses to ignore me.
So until recently I put this all down to my nightmares and dreams, but after being told that they had to try and extubate me a number of times (and so even though I did not know it at the time I was awake, or some sort of wakefulness even though it may have been for short periods) and remembering the pharmacist, I am convinced now that I was awake and thought that I was talking.
Can anyone else relate to this?
