Is there a number you can call for the ward you were on in the hospital? If not if it were me I would call out of hours doctors, would have me very worried too and tbh if someone can put your mind at rest then it is worth the phone call.

Good luck I hope it is ok xxxxx


TBH, i'd call out of hours and see what they say, could be nothing, then again who knows, better to be safe if it suddenly appeared.
