At 11am i was recovering in the recover ward , got taken back to the day room and was resting , at 12pm i called the nurse over as i had seen blood coming out from under my dressing between 12pm and 6pm the nurse was having problems to stop the bleeding 3 doctors were called but only 1 show up after 6 hrs of me bleeding to dead they manage to stop it only for me not to feel my right leg , when the nurse asked me to stand i almost fell flat onto my face .i could not walk on that leg for 4 days as someone had put in a nerve blocker in it . anyway got sent home at 7pm in great pain. I was back in the same night as i had breathing problems and was brought in back by ambulance at 2am only to be keep waiting for 6 hrs in constast pain which i found out was when the doctor who did the operation had cause my spine to be bend in so much that i was in constast pain . when i put in a complain nothing had been done about it .
