“I went to hospital with a chronic pain in my stomach. After several hours I was sent home with some meds and got told I had a chest infection. After a few hours I started being sick with blood coming out of my mouth, and still had a chronic pain in my stomach. I was rushed into hospital and had emergency surgery which was not successful. I had the priest in to give me my last rights. I went downhill and need emergency surgery again. Priest in again, and my last rights were given again. 
I don’t know why, but I still have major problems that affect my daily living. I have been told there is no further surgery available to me, and I have to suffer with chronic pain through my body and multiple hernias which they can’t operate on due to scar tissue and adhesion to the gut. I still haven’t accepted my scar.”
