"ERPC treatment"

Anything else?

I was referred by my doctor to have a scan as they thought I might have retained products from my miscarriage and have an infection. The scan apt came back next day as it was an emergency due to my symptoms. I had a fever and in pain. The radiologist at the Pru told me that they could see some retained tissue but I would have to wait till Monday and see my doctor. I couldn't believe that I had to wait the whole weekend when I was in pain. So I went to a&e and waited 4 hours to see a nurse and another 2 hours to see a doctor who told me I would have to stay in and be on antibiotics and have a D&C in the morning. After being at the hospital 7 hours I was desperate for some pain relief. I was moved to the ward but could not get any painkillers as they had mislaid my notes from the doctor and they couldn't get hold of the doctor. I was screaming in pain for 3 hours before they got the doctor to give some. Then when I asked the consultant about my fear of getting ashermans syndrome from the D&c they said it was very rare. I have now found I have it and may not be able to have another child because of the damage done by the D&C. I wish I had never gone to the princess royal. They are under staffed, the doctors are overrun and I feel they should of offered me a alternative to the D&c . I have now payed private to get the scarring and damaged removed. I just pray to god I can get pregnant again.
