Well, I'm still here feeling unwell and no help from anyone. Anyway on Friday I went to a&e as since Wednesday I felt so short of breath and extremely tired.
Anyway I went in and I had a junior doctor who I think pricked me 6 times trying to put an IV in and trying to get blood. She wasn't willing to give up and then mentioned arterial line and I said no. She was surprised that in QE they use local anaesthetic to put in an arterial line! I had a few arterial bloods whilst in my local hospital when I was unwell and it was so painful! The doctor was stabbing and twisting the needle around I remember.
Anyway eventually had a senior doctor who managed to get bloods hurrah! They did an xray and all was well.
However whilst waiting they called me to give me omeprazole 30mg! I asked the nurse why and she said the doctor gave it. I told her I am not allowed omeprazole without them contacting the liver unit. I have omeprazole as one of the medicines on the list of medicines not to take. She went off to ask the doctor and inform him. She came back saying the doctor said he checked the pharamacy list or whatever and I am allowed so I declined frustratingly. I kept asking them why and they had no clue and also the fact that they didn't think of contacting QE annoyed me. I told them I'm on lanzaprazole anyway. They came the third time with another medicine so I asked firmly what it was for and she replies that I went in with epigastric pain which I did not. During the general questions they asked if I have pain and I said now and then I have a stomach pain but it subsides after a while. I also told them the protocol of contacting a coordinator and so on.
Anyway I was let off but the junior doctor kept saying why I was being so fussy if I'm on lanzaprazole and omeprwzole isn't different. I told her it is, it also interferes with tacrolimus.
I came out feeling really upset that they would not put their pride aside and contact the coordinator. I feel I'm not getting any help for my anemia!
What do I do?!!
