    april042019 got a reaction from LearningToLoveMeAgain in Extremely rude nurse   
    I just my had surgery a few days ago and while I was at the hospital my mom and friend came to visit (both of them wear hijab). They went home and I took a nap and when I woke up my nurse was standing by my bed putting syringes into my iv and she asked me if the people that visited me were related to me and I told her they're my mom and friend. She started telling me how much she hated the islamic hijab and what it stands for and how she liked other religions veils but not the islamic one. Later, she became incredibly rude and aggressive with me. She was trying to show me how to give myself the blood thinner injection that i'm supposed to take when I go home. She put it in my hand and told me to do it now. I told her to give me a second because I had just woken up and was feeling groggy but she started telling me not to be a coward and to do it now. I told her ok I'm gonna do it just give me 1 second to breathe but she grabbed my hand and pushed the needle into me against my will.
    Later, she told me she would go to lunch for 30 mins and come back to help me walk. I waited for an hour and a half and when she didn't come me and my mom, who had just arrived, went to walk by ourselves. We had walked for half an hour and just got back to my room when the nurse came back and started yelling at me and my mom because she thought I hadn't walked and have been waiting for her the whole time. I told her I just got back from walking but she didn't believe me and was yelling at my mom and saying that my mom is going to be the death of me because of how much she spoils me and doesn't make me do stuff and my mom was telling her that we just walked but the nurse wouldn't have it and kept on going and saying that it's all my moms fault and she can't trust her to take care of me at home and she started trying to pull me up from my chair to walk and I told her I couldnt i just walked and im in a lot of pain now and she started yelling at me and I was crying and telling her i cant and that my stomach and back and arm hurt a lot and she would keep telling me to stop crying and get up and that I'm too lazy. She made me get up and walk and after that I asked to be discharged right away and I left that day. Every time I remember that nurse I get so mad at what happened and wish I could've done something.
    Am I right to be mad? Any suggestions on what I should do?

    Thank you for all your kind words and suggestions! I didn't say anything at the time because I was scared and I normally have a lot of anxiety and with the surgery I didn't know right from left but I will be speaking to the hospital very soon about all of it. Again, thank you all. ❤️❤️ 😘

    I think I drank them in about 5-10 minutes. I'm realizing that my surgeon has told me literally nothing and I'm learning everything on my own and from the internet. I know it's my responsibility to ask him but sometimes I don't know what to ask and I barely see him for a few minutes and he runs off. I'm scared my stomach stretched and ruined the whole purpose of the surgery.

    Hello everyone.
    Ever since surgery ive been trying to feel full but i’m not feeling full at all no matter what i eat so i was worried and googled it and found out that I dont feel full because of nerve damage in my stomach so i’m supposed to be measuring everything (2 oz per meal) I didnt know this and i’ve been drinking a full cup of milk, a bowl of Soup, pudding, a Protein Shake and a bunch of stuff and sometimes all at once. It’s been all liquids so i thought that maybe its all just sliding through and thats how it fits but after reading all that stuff online im very worried. I cant feel anything but if im supposed to be eating/drinking 2 oz per meal and ive been doing at least 10+ oz something must be wrong right? Or is it different for liquids? Thoughts?
