As most of you know I had my lap over 2 weeks ago where they found a serious infection and a lot of fluid due to a cyst that never drained years ago. I was put on routine antibiotics for 2 weeks and was told i would be contacted with the antibiotics that will 100% make me better. The pain hasn't lessoned atall- possibly worse, but I assumed the lack of contact from hospital meant I was on the correct ones. It was only when I booked a last min GP appointment I found out theyd actually collected the fluid in the wrong container and it has hence been destroyed. Previously i was suspected to have adhesions or endo because they said my womb was 'stuck' to my pelvic wall. There was no mention of this after my op however and the doctor who saw me when I was subsequently sent to a&e said she could see i had a serious infection still however they dont know how to get rid of it because they dont have my results which means i may have to have the lap all over again just to see whats wrong! I feel like its one thing after another and I'm so annoyed that they dont seem to know whats going on/dont tell me. What I wanted to know is that do you think this is grounds for a complaint? (I dont want to be one of those people however because of this mistake i have missed weeks of uni, months of work and im thinking maybe a complaint would kick them into really helping me) And how do you think the best way of explaining everything to a doctor is? I always forget the things i need to say and want to say that everyone says they suspected endo, and my womb was stuck so what is going on?! I'm so confused, has anyone had any problems like this?
