My hysterectomy was performed by a "student" although the consultant was there.Nobody noticed that he had burst blood vessels in my pelvis resulting in two collections of blood which then went bad and started to poison me.
What should have been a very short stay as there were no wounds (in theory) left me in hospital for 16 nights in total, on an intravenous antibiotic drip and oral antibiotics at the same time and an emergency re-admission when they decided I was fit enough for home.
I have never felt to ill in all my life and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
I was feverish and ill almost from the time I was first returned to the ward, but it took them 3 days before they scanned me and found the collections by which time I was thoroughly poisoned. That was 15 years ago and I still suffer the consequences.
Don't hesitate if you have the slightest suspicion that something isn't right. You know your own body best, don't be fobbed off with the lets wait and see attitude
