I had Bardoc out as I was in pain on right side of abdomon, and had difficulty breathing. The doctor booked an Ambulance for me even though I said we could go in car, he said I could possibly need oxygen, so an ambulance would be better. He was good. Took a couple of hours for ambulance to come, as they were re-directed to more important case, no problem with that, and the ambulance staff were very good. In A&E had to have xrays, bolld samples etc, which were all carried out well. At 3.30am was told everything is fine and I can go home. Still not able to breath properly and in pain. I asked the doctor on duty, I wish I had got his name, but you don't when you are not used to going to hopital, how can there be nothing wrong when I can't breath and am in pain. He asked me if I am having social problems at home! which I am definately no having. I got the impression he thought it all in my mind. At home now still the same, and have rung North Manchester Medical unit and they are looking into a clot on the lung. Just waiting for them to call me. Very good care at hospital, but did not appreciate being sugggested it is all in my mind, or a result of problems at home.
