Nope, never have broken a limb. Been in 3 minor car accidents; all with the same driver. But I have spent more time in a hospital than I've wanted to twice.Originally Posted by pikachu
My wisdom teeth were all impacted so that was done under general anethesia. In/out same day. Same with a couple of other procedures to do with my stomach. The weirdest one was swallowing an awful tasting liquid and maybe xrays taken? The weird thing was the fact they wouldn't let me leave the floor until someone came and got me. Yet, I was allowed to leave on my own after an endoscopy. I even took the bus home.
I spent almost a week in the hospital prior to my son's birth because of my douchebag OB/GYN. He wanted my son delivered on HIS schedule because his moving day was the 1st of the month. I spent the first two days there from 7am-7pm being induced twice a day. I got the next day off (moving day) and finally delivered my son on the Friday after being induced once again. Even typing about this makes me livid after all these years!! What should have been something beautiful and memorable turned into one big fiasco.
About 3 years ago I got an abcess behind my tonsil along with another pr!ck of a doctor. I had to stay in the hospital for 4 days being pumped full of antibiotics. The doctor wanted the swelling to go down so he could take out my tonsils. WTF? I'd never had one single issue with my tonsils and I wasn't going to let this beast anywhere near me. I went to the follow up but didn't make an appt for surgery. Another ENT in our city doesn't necessarily remove tonsils/adenoids unless they are causing issues frequently. Plus, I'd also read that tonsillectomies are much more difficult for adults and recovery time is much longer than for children.
Couple of weeks ago, thought I was having a heart attack. My blood pressure was off the charts. They gave me some meds to bring it down and gave me the option of staying overnight. My blood pressure was normal by that point and nothing of significance on the echocardiogram. I said hell no! I will follow up with my family doctor, tyvm.
I'm not a good patient and I bet the nurses who were treating me were happy to see me leave! LOL
