just wondering has anyone had life changing surgical complications. mine is a long story but i had a hysterectomy in a private hospital 8 years ago. i had a long surgical history and was told it was likely to be difficult but doable. i had terrible complications and two days after the surgery my bowel perforated. i spent months in hospital being told id never eat or drink again. i was told repeatedly id recover or my bowel would heal or i could be fixed. none of these things happened and two years ago I was told this was me for life. i can eat and drink but i have 3 stoma bags, life is difficult, i have ptsd and anxiety and no support.
as time has gone in I've felt angry and let down,
i wondered if anyone else has had such an experience in a private hospital and what was your support like, of any. i never complained because I was misled into thinking id recover, now its too late. i dread my future .
thank you for reading.
