I had been feeling unwell for some time. I had an awful lot of coughing. The GP advised that I send for a home covid test. I felt dizzy going up the stairs and I collapsed. My husband rang the ambulance. They took me to The Royal ED. I was sent for a CT scan which showed a blood clot on the lung. I arrested. I woke up in ICU 6 North. When I woke up I was scared and tired. I was in ICU for two days.
I was then transferred to The Mater. I had an MRI scan. I was in the Mater Respiratory Ward for two weeks. The ward was spotless but it was cold at night. They overfed us. The food was lovely. The staff were brilliant. They all looked after me. I felt very low when I was the only patient in the bay. I was scared about scans but the staff spoke to me and reassured me.
Iwas then transferred to Whiteabbey Nightingale for physio. The day after I arrived, they took me to the gym for physio. The following day was stair practice. The staff supported me.
The food was okay. The ward was clean. All the staff are more than friendly. The couldn't do enough for you.
