The Wonders of Medicine

I’ll stay away from the obvious political comments here, but a British man recently had his appendix removed after it burst30 days after his appendix was removed. Seems the doctors missed it the first time. Sorry chap.

Before the first operation they told me I had to have my appendix removed and when I woke up afterwards they said it had been a complete success.

‘But then I keeled over in agony one month later and when they did some tests at the hospital we could see the appendix was still there on the scans.

‘As far as I was aware they took my appendix out and no one told me any different.

‘I have no idea what they did take out, but I want to find out what went wrong.’

[Said the doctor]:’We are unable to comment on individual cases. However, we would like to apologise if Mr Wattson felt dissatisfied with the care he received at Great Western Hospital.’

Ya think?!? That’s not very NICE.
