Diabetes is a silent killer. Once infection there is no cure

Any body in your family got diabetes ask them to take care of cuts and wounds. See a doctor fast or once infection sets in no cure.
I had 2 bad experience at TTSH. It is not the care or service because the nurses are excellent. It is the problem with doctors. First case happens more than 4 years back. I was warded for a wound on my left hand. The doctor in charge advised me to go for surgery to cover my wound but instead created a mess by not connecting my tendons properly causing me to have 4 fingers unable to move. Then put me on physiotherapy for 1 year but for a nerve connection. I am disabled until today. Second incident happens in December 2018 and the diabetes doctor did not try to save the wound on my leg and without telling me chop off my toe on my right leg. After surgery advised me to go for another surgery as the wound is not clean enough. I of course refused and within 5 days advised me that the infection has spread and need to cut up to my knee level. All within 15 days I lost the use of my right leg. It seems the doctor is trigger happy to cut and cut instead of saving the patients legs. If the management of TTSH did not allow, will this happens? It seems they duscriminate against patients staying in C wards but I did not stay free but use my Medisave and my mom’s. Be very careful when you stay at TTSH especially that doctor.

I would also like to commend on the excellent care and service by Nurse Megan in Ward 11 when I wet my bed many times in the night and request fo buy drinks from the vending macine, or complaints of pain when inserting needles. She does everything with a smile. At Ren Ci Hospital Nurse Edmund Ward 11 even gave me a free haircut when my hair is long
