I remember this one career junkie who came in to the ward
>guy was 50 lived in a shanty in the country
>lifelong ne'er do well. opiate abuser
>brought in by ambos with a groin abcess, they described filthy state of shanty. no running water, shat in a bucket next to the bed.
>guy injected endode tablets into his femoral vein.
Background: only the most hardcore of junk monkeys will go for the femoral vein which is deep, difficult and painful. They do it because they have fucked up every other surface vein and shelfing does not do it for them. its easy to fuck it up resulting in severe and permanent consequences as we shall shortly see.
>actually guy fucks it up horribly and injects an unsterile mixture of solubulized pill constituents, including the fillers and agents that the pill manufacturers are putting in pills these days to deter injecting.
>oops, guy gave himself a large groin abcess, a mass of infected and dead tissue deep in his groin area.
Background: big abcesses are commonly treated with surgery to remove the unviable tissue and antibiotics to stop the spread.
>guy laid up in a hospital bed. biggest surgical wound we've seen in a long time. "femoral artery on view".
>exposed lymph tissue means the dressing is constantly saturated. end up wrapping it in daipers to control the leakage.
>guy's a whiny junky turd, abusive and uncooperative, a nurses nightmare.
>liver failure from hepatitis. guys a gonner within a month. it was his shit attitude that got him in the end.
