I am absolutely fuming
I am in hospital with stomach condition and awaiting the results of this for treatment.
Last week I couldn’t have it because the doctors hadn’t written that I needed it under general anaesthetic on the referral sheet. I was nil by mouth from 8 in the morning no water no fluids no food as that’s what it means. I get down then and find out they haven’t put the correct information on the paper so it got cancelled. So that was a whole day wasted and a whole day that a severely underweight person went without food or water (me) and had to have an enema which obviously made my stomach problems worse for a few days
yesterday: I’m told everything is set for general anaesthetic the endo nurse come and does the form just as she’s leaving the anaesthetist comes up and screams in her face about having to many patients and not being able to go home on time (on the ward in front of everyone)
Today: nil by mouth again from 6:30 told no painkillers all I could have was an injection of a small amount of morphine (not enough for my pain at all but that’s what the anaesthetist said) put in a gown made to lie on a blue slide sheet all day again no fluids. Had the enema at 2 was told I was going at 3. Asked multiple times what was happening told nothing. At 6 o’clock this evening I was told it had been cancelled by the head nurse and no reason given. Again a wasted day in excruciating pain and no food
All the pain and suffering I’ve gone through to have these and both times not been done. On top of all the 15 complaints I have against the ward I’m on I’m literally at the end of how much I can take
The head nurse is coming back Monday with PALs and the matron to work this out and open investigations that’s all good but what does that so go help me.
I’m now told I have been put on a list for the sister hospital an hour away that will require ambulance transfers there and back and what if I get there and it’s cancelled again if that doesn’t happen I have to wait two more weeks in here to go on the list in two weeks.
I just don’t trust them anymore
Sorry for the long post I needed to rant. Been here a month now and a month away from my little boy a month of being very ill 😢
