"My admission to St Helier Hospital"
Posted by Morrie (as ),
I was a patient in East Surrey Hopital in early 2009. I was sent there supposedly suffering from pneumonia, whilst in there I was given huge doses of intravenous antibiotics but condition worsened. Dr Harris was visiting patients and when she saw me, she concluded that I was suffering from a rare auto-immune disease called Wegener's granulomatosis and immediately transferred as an emergency to St Helier hospital for treatment. Whilst there I had superb treatment over two weeks and I felt better. I was discharged and have to take various drugs to hold off the disease, which is in-curable. I have to go to the Renal Clinic every few months and my medication is reviewed.
