"was treated at 10 pm on tuesday ..."

About: Weston General Hospital

What I liked

was treated at 10 pm on tuesday july 20th with a wound infection from the garden on my right arm which had enlarged and had septocemia..

i would like to thank the doctor who immediately after diagnosing this put me on saline drip and penicillin intravenous drip and oxygen mask... after 4 hours treatment i left with my arm in a sling and penicillin medication.. it would be true to say the doctor saved me from going into septic shock which can result in death...

i would like to thank the doctor and all the great team who looked after me.. congratulations!!!!

many many thanks....
