Hello there.

Your hospital certainly seems to be messing you around and not giving much thought to your needs. Is there a complaints dept at your local? If so, I would certainly get in touch as soon as possible and lodge a complaint. Whilst I admire you for taking it on the chin and being so accepting of the situation, you sometimes need to make a bit of a fuss to get yourself heard. Its bad enough being in the position of having to deal with your diagnosis, without being on the receiving end of you hospitals incompetance.

Go girl. I'm right behind you. X


Annie, have you rang them yet. if not say you need it done Today x


This is ridululous. You need that drain. I think its time to contact the complaints dept and if you need to, tell them you will be phoning the Nolan Show on Radio 5_Live. That'll get them moving, they hate bad publicity and what's worse than a cancer patient requiring a drain being messed around. Ann x


Glasgow is a mess just now with the hospital moves . I could go accident and emergency at the new hospital and would prob get done after a 12 hour sit . I'm not kidden there like headless chickens just now . I'm booked or so they say 1st June . At the beatson . Not in pain just sort off nine month pregnant pain comfort wise ect . I think I was just amazed at my scan being good because I did bloat while on Clemo . I see someone has posted today on bloat while on Clemo Caelyx . Must be a side effect lol
