"ICU are the most amazing dedicated team I have ever had the privilege of meeting"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I went to hospital because I thought I was having panic attacks. They took me into xray rushed me to re-suss and put me in a coma for nine days and also put me on life support for nine days because my body and organs would not support any treatment they gave me. What happened is I had made myself sick to the point I tore the lining in my stomach and my stomach acid was leaking into my blood stReam and started shutting my organs down I had more acid in my blood than I did oxygen. They gave me a 5% chance of survival and not even 5 hours to live. ICU are the most amazing dedicated team I have ever had the privilege of meeting
