I had a tumour removed from my left calf on the 16.01.15 and used VAC dressing till the 05.02.15 when I had skin graft. I first visited Weston General on the 22.01.15 because I had a leak on my VAC dressing. After four hours of waiting I was told that there wasn't anyone that deals with VAC dressing, on the same night went elsewhere and the care assistant changed my dressing (not even a nurse, shame). I had the unpleasant experience to visit Weston General again tonight 09.02.15 because the dressing that covers the part that skin was shaved off to cover the calf was bleeding, I tried to patch it up at home my self but with no success. So went to WG were I was interrogated by one unfriendly nurse about the last time I was there more than issue at hand. I was sent to the waiting area as a form of punishment and told that because I have had the operation in Bristol we are not responsible. I could not endure anymore this nightmare so I took a taxi home patched the wound my self and will be going elsewhere and I thought I'd share my experience while I wait for the morning to come.
