When to go to hospital

Was so close last night to giving in and calling an ambulance I was so weak and struggled to talk due to my sobbing and shaking from the pain. I know I havnt yet had it confirmed as I havnt seen my gynaecologist and don’t know ho along it will be but I feel maybe I should of been seen as maybe it would put more urgency on it. It’s such a cruel thing for me as yes I do still get times where I feel ok and those days r precious but I always keep in mind that I’m not ok. And I knew last night I’d get sick but hoped I wouldn’t get as bad as I did. My poor husband is worrying so much for me to see him crying too was hard

Awwww lovely I'm so sorry you and your hubby are experiencing such sad times. Bless you I hope the gynae comes through soon. As for a n e lovely if you get to that point again go they'll give meds to help and it may speed up the gynae don't sit at home in pain if nothing is, stopping you. I try to grin and bare as I have a young daughter no child care but if nothing is, restricting you please go and get the help you need.

Big hugs I hope it's, eased now 💗🤗😘

Sorry to hear your pain was that bad 😣

I went to A&E last year and honestly, yes they did give me morphine to help with the pain but they done a scan and literally nothing else. Decided to refer me to gynae since I had no referral in the system, and despite missing their own appt while I was in, they sent me home with nothing other than advice to speak to my gp. Although it’s worth going in order to get help for the pain at that time if you need it, please don’t build your hopes on the fact that they’ll speed anything along for you x

So the gynaecologist told I to go back and speak to your Gp? Is that correct?

No, the surgeons I saw after going to A&E told me that they couldn’t help me after they missed the gynae appt they made for me, so I was just to go back to my GP

I got lucky that there was a cancellation so they slotted me in the next morning but when they missed that one and told me I’d have to make another I was left with a 30 week wait. Thankfully I saw someone privately who has now moved things along much quicker.

But I know how utterly gutted I was after hearing. I genuinely thought going to A&E would help me get some form of treatment, so I just don’t one anyone else getting their hopes up too when there’s a good chance the same might happen to them x
