I caught an infection from the hospital, i believe it is due to the factors below.
The hospital room that i stayed in was small, bright (as we couldn't turn the lights off when i needed to sleep, in the end i put a pillow over my eyes) and the air conditioning didn't work. The day i had my surgery at the end of July was the hottest day of the year. I ended up having to have a portable blower in my room to try and keep me cool. The window was also open and rain coming in. One nurse said to shut it due to risk of infection but another said to keep it open. In the end the window stayed open.
When i was advised about the surgery i was told that i would be in a hotel type room and it would be really comfy and nice,This was not the case.
It cost an extra £500 to stay over night, I was also woken up at 6am and needed to be out of the room by 7:30/8am. which to me was not expected. I only got told i would need to go when they woke me up early.
I kept getting conflicting advice from the nurses on what to do when i went home. when i asked about pain relief at night so i could sleep i was told that i needed to have a mug of warm milk and to tell my self to go to sleep. I was just given paracetamol and ibuprofen for pain medication which was no where enough considering the pain i was in.
Pseudomonas is generally spread in hospitals via the hands of health care workers in my research. No one else in my house hold had suffered this infection.
the results i have received over all i am not overly pleased with. In the consultation we discussed having 2 different sized implants as my boobs were different sizes, this didn't happen and now by boobs are noticeably very different in size. You can see on the final after pictures how much bigger one is than the other. There is nothing i can do about it now, so its now just going to be a case of some thing i have to live with.
On a more positive note the care that i received from both Kat and Sophie after was 10/10 and i cant fault them in any way for how they looked after me following this. The surgeon also took extra care to make sure that every thing was ok and came back to see me on several visits to check on how i was doing.
After all of that i then had a chemical peel FOC which was supposed to be a treat, this then bought blisters up on my face almost immediately. i got told that they think some thing was wrong with the batch and they had sent it back to the manufacturers.
Overall the whole experience has left me very upset and nervous to undergo any type of surgery (cosmetic or otherwise) in the future ...
