I fell 20 ft from a ladder and broke my femur so I was a bit beat up to say the least ! When the ambulance crew told me I was going to the pilgrim I was filled with a little bit of dread because of the bad press it has suffered over the years . The A&E team went to work straight away and kept me talking all the time telling me what was going on and what treatment they were giving me . i had my Xrays , CT and then straight in theater to put a large rod or nail into my femur. When I woke a nurse was there to explain what was going on and what all the pipes plugged into me for (I was a little disoriented) . Over the next 12 hours they had me on my feet and walking with crutches which totally blow me away and now I home and can start the long journey to recover. It's not going to be easy but thanks to everyone at the Pilgrim who help me and worked with me I feel I have a head start . Really can't see what people are talking about , it ain't perfect but it did an excellent job with me ! Thank you very much.
