Kill or cure: medicine in the 19th Century

What were you most likely to die from or did you in spite of some of the remedies get better and live to tell the tale? What was it like to be in hospital, how long were you there for, how well did you get treated and what were some of the other patients like? What were the pros and cons of vaccination? How did you qualify as a doctor, nurse or midwife? What was it like having an operation? What was dentistry like? What were some of the strange cures, strange sounding ailments and odd causes of death cited in the 19th century.
