Whilst in the coma my family stayed in the hospital with me, watched my arms and legs turn black and could only sit and wait to see what the outcome was.
When I was woken from the coma I remember being so scared and not being able to talk. I had no idea what had gone on but was so lucky to have my amazing family around me. I stayed in intensive care for a further week, where I was then moved to a general ward.
I had to learn to walk again and use my arms again, I was so weak. The pain that I endured in hospital with my hands and feet was unbearable. After eight weeks in this ward I was then moved to the Ted Bradley Rehabilitation Unit for intense physio, to learn to walk again and to build up my strength. I spent six weeks there and finally was allowed to go home. I had severely infected feet that had to be bandaged up everyday and weekly visits to the hospital where they removed parts of my feet. Up until August 2012 I underwent many operations where I lost six toes and my heel.
