    Hi there Warm welcome glad that you found us. I think we all leave hospital without hardly any to no information and you're definitely not alone in having that feeling 'what if'. It does get easier as time passes. you'll more than likely get an outpatient apt and then you can ask questions - advice there is to write questions down and take someone along with you to the appt. Rest lots, keep hydrated... Oh I have family in WA. you'll be going into spring/summer so do please remember the hydrated thing...
