Yes, nothing serious though.


However, hospitals seem to be negligent... they don't check patients thoroughly. The last time I went there was for a bacterial infection in my tonsils, I knew there was something severely wrong with me, because I kept getting fevers even though I took paracetemol.

I went there, they checked up and just say it's a normal fever and wanted me to go home. I was ready to go home, then I coughed up blood. That was when they knew it was serious, put me on IV antiobiotic and I had to stay there for 2 nights.


I could have gotten home and die.


I agree, i think when they meet up with the patients they just want to get it over with asap. some doctors need more sympathy xD and geeze, you know when you cough up blood thats not a good sign.. good thing they knew about that

Glad you're alive man!

oh and to reply to the topic, i've been to the hospital for about seven surgeries to try to correct my minor Cerebral Palsy which affects my way of walking but it didn't help all that much, at least... i think. I also visited a lot when my brother had a congenital adhesion in his intestines which is no fun o.o




Thanks

I think you're brave for undergoing those surgeries. I'm still a chicken when it comes to surgeries, doctors said I should remove my tonsils because they're too enlarged...

But I don't want to go under the knife, it freaks me out. Therefore, I have to keep getting tonsilitis over and over and keep taking antibiotics for the rest of my life.

I only went to the hospital once. I was sent there after having a major anxiety attack at a Easter dinner my extended family was having. I could barely move any of my limbs, talk, stop myself from blinking, or even breathe at the time. I also had a sharp pain at what felt like it was at the corner at the corner of my head. When I was laid out on the floor, my aunt, who is a nurse, was checking my reflexes and other such. All I could do was move my eyes, nod, and cry.

At the time, I was having. This was during a six month period where I had almost 30 of them. The previous day, I was at a birthday party for on of my best friends, which was at the house of another best friend, who I had a big crush on for months prior. I had three attacks that day. Sometimes it happened multiple times in one day. Only my friends were aware of this, so when my family first saw what was going on, they thought that I was having a stroke, since apparently with all of the symptoms that I had, to people it looked like I was either having a stroke or a seizure. So when the ambulance came by, I had to be helped standing up and I sitting on the stretcher.

I was only at the hospital for a couple of hours. They ran multiple tests to conclude that it was due to stress and agitation. For the most part, I stared at the ceiling feeling like crap for making everyone worry about me again. Especially since that time I ended up getting my family involved.

Anyways, that was over a year ago an the last time I had an anxiety attack was on Halloween. I feel much better now.

Just do it. mine used to flare up every other week as a kid, had them taken out in the early 90's and haven't had a problem since. They can't get sore and inflamed if they no longer exist after all. Lost a good excuse to stay home from school though.

You're welcome good sir!

lol, you could say that i guess but i didn't really have too much of a say in the matter xD for all i know i have more planned for me in the future. well wouldn't it benefit you more if they went in there and fixed it for ya? Dx that doesn't sound too comfortable for tonsils to be enlarged ._. can you feel them in their enlarged state? i didnt know how to phrase that otherwise.

I understand that x) i was freaked out too at first, though the next second i knew i was knocked out by gas xP whats tonsilitis? that sounds like a giant pain man, especially since you described it earlier as potentially fatal :(

That smell of antiseptic is disturbing... When I was younger I had to go to the night doctor for hallucinations and hated seeing all those sick people around, it reminded me of the girl who was sick in the Sixth Sense. So of course when my sister was giving birth and i wasn't aloud inside because i was 15 and had to wait outside i thought i was going to be approached by someone scary.

There were wheelchairs and hospital gowns everywhere and it just makes me shiver, we went to a Greggs in the "Heart and Lung centre" and i couldn't even eat my food thinking of all those two words, it just disturbs me.

Nah, I can't feel my tonsils... even though they're enlarged. It just gives me tonsilitis, which is a fancy word for sore throat and you get a really high fever.
It's different from normal people's sore throat, in a way that if I don't take antibiotics on time, they'll get inflamed and burst, that's when I'll start coughing up blood, and the only way to stop that bleeding is to go to the hospital to drink this bitter medicine that heals the wound.

It's only fatal if I'm not near a hospital or in an area without any antibiotics... because I'll either die from the high fever or blood loss.

I got my wisdom teeth taken out, and broke my collar bone. I have been to the emergency room for my stomach, for something I can't remember...I think, and one time when I woke up due to my inability to breathe.
I have been to a hospital for my cousin's heart surgery. We also broke our collar bones at the same instance, so we were there at the same time.

Don't worry the sick people won't kill you, only the sick can.

I have never had any major health problem where I needed to be admitted to the hospital (thankfully I am scared of going under for surgery) but I have gotten lab work done at them before. I have also visited family and friends who where in for different reasons. Also my mom and brother work at one so I have actually been to them more then I can count, thankfully all the visits have ended well enough.

I'm one of those people that feel "at home" when I'm at a hospital. Even before working (and before that volunteering), I've always had the sense of peace whenever I was in a hospital. I think that might partly be because my Mom would always take my sister and I to her job before when we were little. So I guess it's natural that I ended up on the path of going to medical school to become a doctor.

But I've personally been admitted into the hospital twice in my life (I think within the same year now that I think about it). The first time was for something fairly minor and the second time was after my accident (ankle dislocation with 3 different types of fractures, including an open fracture). I honestly hated my second hospital stay though, since I couldn't get up and do anything for myself.

I don't mind hospitals, I'm going for an operation on my jaw in 2 years time when I'm 18/19.
I used to make a lot of visits to the hospital to see a friend who had leukaemia and grew accustomed to visiting every other day until sadly she passed away.

I don't mind hospitals. The nurses are really nice at the hospital in my town and I actually find the smell of antiseptic somewhat comforting. Or maybe I'm just saying this because the longest I've stayed in a hospital is three hours. ><

I have been to the Hospital before at the age of 6 or 5 but I can't remember exactly. All I know it the feeling needles poking me.

The reason I was there I got stomach infection because of....(can't remember)

But hospitals are not that bad, it help you to recover from any sickness that could be fatal to you.
But when visiting it can be dangerous because all those viruses from the patients all crawling around waiting to infect.
