- When were you last in hospital..?
So the wife got rushed in to hospital last night and is awaiting tests now. Got me thinking I’ve not really had much hospital time, last time was February before last after I dislocated my shoulder at CyB (still bloomin hurts too) though I was only in overnight.
When were you last in and what for?Posted 7 years agoD0NKSubscriber
quite a lot last couple of years due to family tho, I wasn’t being treated. A&E for badly sprained ankle 3/4yrs ago, quite a few more A&E before that, my one and only overnight was when I was sucker punched at school, knocked dizzy/senseless (not out), short term amnesia, woke up/came round in hospital.Posted 7 years agoKunstlerMember
Almost two years ago. The night before New Year’s Eve, fettling a light mount for my son’s bike. I remember thinking ‘I should really clamp this down before cutting a notch in it with a pen knife’, followed by ‘nah, that’s too much faff, I’ll be allright’.
I spent all of New Years Eve daytime in hospital having a tendon in index finger stitched back together. Well, waiting for surgery most the day and then waiting to get my belongings back from a locker that no nurse could seem to find a key for.
I seem to remember having little/no painkillers other than the large amount of whisky that I celebrated the New Year with that evening.Posted 7 years agokeavoMember
maybe 6-7 years ago, after a hot marin rough ride. my kidneys failed due to extreme dehydration. adrenaline injection and 24 hours on a drip fixed me. still don’t really know why it happened but suspect i was probably ill in some way before the event. i don’t bother with very long rides any more having decided its not really good for me.Posted 7 years agojulianwilsonMember
Monday: at work.
Last time for my own welfare would have been about 8 years ago for broken elbow, worst bike injury, sustained on nice friendly tarmac cycling past the Lord Louis ‘pub’ near Newnham Park if you know it. (If you don’t, don’t bother).
I did get a ride in the St John Retromobile (actually rather ace) at an xc race in May when i messed up a cheeky line and binned it onto my rotator cuff, but I avoided a formal hospital in my treatment/recovery.Posted 7 years agoNaranjadaMember
In April 2000 I spent 4 weeks in the hospital with a comminuted fracture of the left distal tibia – yep, 25 fractures in a piece of my tibia about 1″ long, just above the ankle. And I broke my fibula too, but apparently that doesn’t matter so it was ignored.
4 operations and 1 Ilizarov device fitting later I finally escaped once I’d proved I could walk up a flight of stairs on crutches. Just the act of swinging your legs over the side of the bed after nearly 4 weeks supine was an effort.
5 months later and I was back on two feet without the scaffolding attached.
My left leg is still sore.Posted 7 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
3 weeks ago after doing something to my ankle. Practically crawled into the loacl Walk in centre where the nurse took one look at my ankle and told be to ‘go to A&E now’ as she was pretty sure that I’d cracked something.
Once at A&E, they took one look at my ankle and said go home – couple of days to a couple of weeks to heal.
3 weeks later and I still can’t flippin’ walk properly 🙁Posted 7 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
About 18 years ago – having wisdom teeth removed – had two nights in. In fact I have never been in hospital overnight for ‘real’ problems – I elected to be in inpatient for the wisdom teeth as they could do all four at once rather than have two trips to the dentist on local anaesthetic.
Last week I was in with one of my daughters (chest infection) and going again tonight to see my mum who is having biopsies done on lymph nodes and lungs for suspected cancers 🙁Posted 7 years agoDekerfMember
In A & E from when i was hit by an un-insured driver whilst commuting in london, March 2004. Broke both elbows and a bone in my hand. Ambulance didn’t think it was serious and said it was fine to cycle the rest of the way to work (about 2 1/2 miles)…. Police weren’t bothered either, and didn’t think it was in there interest to pursue the driver!!!
Then two operations in the early part of 2007 to fix one of the elbows and shoulder i damaged in the accident…
Thankfully haven’t been in since (was quite a bad start to 2004, i already had a broken ankle when i got hit by the car, didn’t realise at the time, plus 4 different hospitals in the Jan of that year for a suspected detached retina)Posted 7 years ago
