I Get Knocked Down But I Have to Get Back Up


Eric Douglin, my story.

“We have to operate immediately or you could die within 24 hours”

No, this wasn’t a line out of TV shows like Casualty, Grey’s Anatomy, ER, or for the older generation St Elsewhere.

This line was said to me by a very worried looking surgeon at the Prince Royal University Hospital, Orpington on 3rd January 2021

a close call,
this is pretty much how it is for most of us that have had emergency surgery, I was contacted by Eric to share his story and hope that it will help other to see that you can get through and get yourself back on track.
