This is posted with the families permission from a liver support group on Facebook I am gutted such a wonderful woman ..
You haven’t heard from me or my wife Gaynor Lowson for a while but there’s a reason for that.Gaynor was transplanted January 2017 and her new liver did great.In June of the same year she started with back and womb pain we went to rotherham and Worksop hospitals where we were told she had a bad back due to the operation.Gaynor said she’d had a bad back before but this felt different,it was a dragging feeling in her womb.After a scan she was told she had some small fybroids but it shouldn’t cause this pain,it was radiated pain from her back.
Our local GP wasn’t happy and sent her to the cancer/gynaecologist at Worksop hospital
He told her she was in the wrong clinic as this was for cancer patients and sent her away
Things got much worse over the following months so in January this year I paid for a private scan on her back and the results showed no problems
Immediately I took her to Doncaster hospital who on hearing our plight vowed she wouldn’t be discharged as she had been from Rotherham and Worksop without getting to the bottom of the pain.
She’d lost 2 stone in weight and hadn’t eaten for 7 weeks and they’d still been telling her she had a bad back
The next day the doctors at Doncaster informed us that my wife of 29years at 53 years old had ovarian cancer
She died at 2pm 26/6/18
Ironic thing her new liver was perfect
Moral is ,any transplantees out there ,always push for answers to any problems so you don’t end up like my 3 daughters and me.
Motherless and wifeless
For the record
St James hospital were fantastic
