"short stay medical unit"

About: James Paget University Hospital

I am a 37 year old male who was admitted because my ck levels were 119,000 i had done a work out which left me unsble to straighten my arms, it was diagnosed as Rhabdomyolisis. I spent nearly four days in ssmu I was so well looked after and felt in excellent hands. Having never stayed in hospital before I was unsure how I would feel. I was amazed at how hard working but friendly everyone was. I wish I could thank everyone personally for their help. I felt like I was with friends unyet we'd never met. I think all of you should be paid so much more for what you do. Really it's incredible. My bloods ck level went as high as 51,000, I came out when they lowered to 44,000. I thank you again and want to say keep up the good work. Special thanks to staff :-D
