I had an incident in Atyrau - Kazakhstan Dec 2009. I awoke in incredible pain to find I had a kidney stone lodged between kidney and bladder (yes it Hurts!). As they couldn't operate there they flew me back to UK via Moscow. Moscow was in the grasp of a freak cold spell (-30C) so I was stuck there for 6 hours. Finally I arrived in London to find my flight to Manchester had been cancelled so had to swap terminals and buy an extra ticket for me and the Doctor travelling with me. Eventually I arrived at the hospital in Manchester 30hours after leaving Kazakhstan, but because of all the pain killers I had been given by the Doctor they couldn't operate for a further 8 hours! It was a nightmare - I managed to get out of hospital on 24th Dec!
Blimey, Phil! What a nightmare that sounds!
