"Absolutely disgusted"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

I have been admitted into this hospital 3 times now by my gp with right sided abdominal pain to be sent home every time with no more answers as to what is wrong. Have been in constant agony for 5 weeks and still the same now. Doctors and consultants behaviour and attitude was disgusting and rude in my opinion, they couldn't find the problem (after only looking for the obvious causes) and therefore dismissed me home with the diagnoses of its all in my head. Has been a very upsetting time for me and my family as I am only 19 and have been made to feel like a fraud when I thought that if you were in pain they were there to help you not say you are making it all up and there's nothing they can do. I hope to never have to deal with this hospital again as like I said I am now very down in myself. One doctor even rang my mother and told her a pack of lies about me being rude to nurses which she knows is a lie as she was with me at the time of this supposed incident, after getting upset over this particularly thing I requested to see the doctor in question who had said these lies to be told by him that he did not say this to my mother even when a nurse said he did. Also just keep being told go back to your gp, which is all good but when your gp keeps sending you back to there I'm not sure what to do and am just going round in painful circles. One very unhappy, in pain, young girl who has been made to feel very small and worthless.
