"Donna Cripps"

About: Wexham Park Hospital

Anything else?

Came in with chronic pain as result of the garden clinic referring me. Once I arrived I was left in pain to sit on a chair in ward 20 without any pain relief , finally they scanned me but no definite diagnosis , then sent me home in agony at gone midnight. The doctors instructed me to return for blood test on the Saturday . U was fobbed off again and again with 3 further visits no care was given till finally I was in so much pain I had to call an Amberlance to get care. I came in to A and E but I was then left for 4 hours till finally a nurse asked me for urine, I was then told I was still pregnant but it's a non viable pregnant and offered pain killers and told to go home and there was nothing that could be done for me. I damanded a second opinion the next consultant then said he agreed there was nothing they could do and sent me to sit back on the chairs . The outcome off this ordeal was I did have an eptopic pregnancy, so my right ovary had to be removed . If I had been cared for and diagnosed originally I may not have lost my ovary ! Donna Cripps, slough.
