"13 years of absolute hell"

About: University College Hospital / Urology

Misdiagnosed / Obvious & clear test results ignored leading to bladder detrusor total failure leaving me with a suprapubic catheter since August 2005. Sent home with no knowledge how to deal with catheter afterwards. I have been admitted for multiple infections, on one occasion (within a carefully proven timeline, accepted by UCH in reply to a complaint) when I clearly had a serious infection, I was put in a bed inn A&E with filthy sheets from previous patients stay, I contracted MRSA. Which I am tested positive for every time I go to a Hospital or GP'. I have suffered countless attacks of-sepsis, which can kill. And just so that it is clear to people, MRSA is still a potentially life threatening disease. I have now got prostate cancer, a dreadfully compromised immune system, & I have been treated like scum. A nuisance that all would like to go away. Well, here's some good news. I probably will, quite soon. This reflects on everyone, & is so unfair to the other wonderful people who work their hearts out for the patients lucky enough to get them. August 2005 Is not on your when did I visit list. Loads of times I have come begging for help but there is never an Urologist at A&E.
