That really sucks; I'm sorry you were dealt such an unlucky hand.
Was there anthing particularly good or bad that struck you when dealing with the doctors involved in your care? I have worked in spinal injury units, and some of the patients can be so (understandably) hopeless - what, do you think, can be a helpful thing to say/do?
You seem to have an awesome attitude. Probably doesn't mean much for you to read that from a stranger, but I really admire you!

I've seen some particularly bad cases of FAS; you honestly look fine man. Sorry you had to take the brunt of someone else's stupid fucking choices in life.

I had a patient with abdominal pain a few months ago.
Someone, not me, had ordered an abdo film.
First and only time an AXR has been helpful in undifferentiated abdo pain, as it showed an intact lightbulb in the rectum.
Patient denied all knowledge, naturally. Couldn't get it out in ED, so had to take them to theatre.
Even after all that, they still had no idea how it got there. Biggest mystery of my career 🤔

Months of puns in work. Was a struggle.

Usually on a scale of 1-10.
