I went to hospital (A&E)overnight, got some emergency treatment, and was sent home - that was a Thursday night Friday morning, though it was actually 3.30 pm I was sent home.
I was back in A&E at 11pm and in theatre at 02:00 Saturday
I had a prolapsed haemorrhoid, and that should have been that - probably off work a week then back to work - but No! complications. I was again sent home mid morning Saturday. 08:00 Sunday back into hospital by ambulance in extreme pain! can't give me pain relief as contra indicated for procedure earlier.... Transpired (as I understand it) the operation site suffered swelling which basically blocked the exit from my bladder and my bladder was getting more & more swollen as time went by. Eventually having released some pressure, again they wanted to send me home on Monday. This time I objected, basically I told them unless all my bits were working properly I was staying until they were! Which was just as well! I ended up having a urinary catheter fitted for 3 days. When it was removed I was held until I had performed 'naturally'.
Hope that gives you what info you need!
I have been employed at this company since Feb28th, 2010
it can be anything up to dismissal, but I have been led to believe a first letter of warning valid for 6 months which means I would not be eligible for any bonus or any other 'extras' for the same 6 month period assuming I have no further days off. (We usually get an Xmas bonus)
