"My time in Norwich hospital"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

Two weeks and a bit I came quite poorly, and was sent by my doctor to Norwich. I was then told I was suffering from gallbladder and stones.

I then had infection after infection and the doctors told me at the hospital bye bye to my gallbladder and stones. I am on strong painkillers and a bag from my liver to drain the bile, I still got some stones still in my liver and have to go back in 6 weeks to check what has happened. If nothing it means that I have to have another operation we think.

Now resting at home for 3 months then I can apply for a carer job as I am an NVQ2 carer myself, and enjoy the work as nursing assistant whilst watching in my hospital bed. This is my experience whilst there.
