It didn't really sink in for awhile. Heck they almost sent me home from the emergency room, them not having found a thing. Then, before I walked out they came back in and told me they had found the break in my back and wrist. I thought it was funny, they had me get up off the stretcher, the ambulance brought me in on, and walk down the hall to x-ray, even though I was complaining of pain when I moved. Wish these places would get their ducks in a row BEFORE they say nothing is wrong. o_O Great health care system we have around here.....
But to answer the question... for some reason I've never stop to consider what MIGHT go wrong in those situations. I figure I'll deal with it if or when it happens. It's always been my wife who's made me go to the hospital when things go wrong. Btw, I fell off an aircraft engine at work and they call for the ambulance that took me to the ER. I was out of it.
The doc says I'm as good as I'm going to get, which isn't too bad considering.
