Re: House Prices
The best time I had in St.Heliers Hospital was a pre operation test on my spine..was not happy about the operation itself that was planned for in the closed down now Hospital Atkinson Morley at Wimbledon.
I went in the ward and one line were female's and the opposite line was males...thought and then thought again..Strange, nobody warned me. 1987 the year was.
We all were having similar tests. Afterwards we had to stay in bed for about 6/8 hours, keep head up and body flat. And drink and drink and drink, we had dye injected and the idea was to rid the body of it as quickly as possible...
The Guy opposite was saying they could not view his spinal column and the previous operation had caused a lot of scar tissue. He was very concerned, had no idea what was in store for him now.
He said he was dying for a cig and I said me also...After the changeover of staff, we both said right, lets move it to the TV room..ok, off we went..
Chatted and smoked. laughed a lot as well. Life History, just happens, talking holiday's and such like.
Then we said he felt a bit sick..So I said best creep back to bed then.. So I was ok but he was sick. Guess that was why you had to stay in bed for a fair time.
Seemed a relief though having a mixed ward for just a couple od days. We all got sent home before the weekend. No staff at all kit was purely a weekday ward for these types of scans.
Guess mixed wards are more the normal these days.
How I would feel now i'm much older. Think i would be ok but would prefer a room to myself, actually.
