I don't think I have ever met a Dr who has made me want to self harm. the story is... If you have read my last posts or were on here last week then basically I cut my leg and thought there was something in the wound as wasn't healing. It still wasn't getting any better so I went to my GP. She basically said that there was nothing they could do from their side as would need an x-ray. She could book me in for one but being as though wasn't healing and risk of infection I would have to go to A+E as of the time it would take etc. So I went to A+E. At first the Dr was really nice to me and making jokes etc. I went for the x-ray and it showed that there were 2 parts in there. He then got quite short with me. He said he would have a go at taking them out himself (as is usual protocol) but before he did it he said along the lines of you may have to have an operation and we will put you to sleep. He injected me with local which hurt more than the wound itself. He had a bit of a dig around but not much and gave up. He was really off with me saying I could lose my leg, I could get a bad infection and that I needed to go to another hospital to have an operation. He got on the phone and told them I was on my way there. I nipped home as was on the way expecting to be in over night at least thinking I was going to be having a general and that I would be cut open. The doc in A+E was saying how it could be a few hours the operation and risks that could bleed out and have to have transfusion and that I could end up with a wound rather than about 3cm long as was but about 20cm long if they couldn't find it. So he sent me on my way to drive myself to the other hospital on the other side of town. I was proper freaking and near panic attack, stupidly wanting more to SI than did before as he had got me in such a state. So I arrive at the hospital and came to terms with the fact that I was going to be operated on. After waiting on the ward for a while 2 plastic surgeons came to see me. They examined my x-ray and asked what had been done so far and just asked loads of questions. They explained to me that IF I needed a operation it would be tomorrow as theatres were busy, but they said I could go home in the mean time if that was the case. So he had a look at the x-ray and said he would like to have a go at trying to get them out, if he couldn't do that then I would be taken down to theatre and they would try again using the live x-ray machine. If that didn't work then I would need to be put under and cut open the next day... they couldn't have done it tonight as needed a whole bunch of other people if putting me to sleep was going to happen.So basically he gave me 2 more attempts before what I thought was a certain was going to happen. He spent about 30 minutes having a poke around and actually managed to get the pieces out. No operation needed! It took him a while but he managed it. I feel that the Doc at A+E didn't really give it a good enough go and gave up too quickly. I know they have targets and stuff in A+E but I do feel that he treated me like crap. If it hadn't have been self harm and I know i will be using them again in the future as I know I will self harm again I would consider making a complaint. But then on the other hand I think if it hadn;t have been self harm then he may have had more time for me. That's the reason I usually get wasted before going to hospital as I really can't deal with people like him. The thing is, even though self harm got me in to this situation I still want to do it. Grrrrrr!
