"After my by-pass"

About: Broadgreen Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I had a five way bypass on 29 January 09. Iwas left with an infection coalise negitive strepo......I had to visit the wound nurse every week for about ten weeks. I have to go back in hospital to be opened up again to see if a wire stitch is causing all my problems. My problems are pretty severe. I am in constant pain on my left side, the muscle by my left breast has dropped. I cannot sleep on my left because of the pain i am taking about 12 painkillers a day plus my usual medication. My blood pressure has never been as high and I have never had my blood pressure taken in the hospital since I was discharged in Febuary. I only realised my blood pressure was high when I bought a blood pressure monitor myself. By the way, the hospital I was in is called a 'centre of excellence'. I could tell you more but my pain killers are wearing off and my pain is coming back - it hurts to use the mouse on the computer.
