"Failed to spot my ectopic."

About: St Helier Hospital

Anything else?

I went to A&E in 2011 june and sufferd loads of pain and extremely heavy clots and blood flow,i was pregnant,i was scared,and worried,i didn't know what was happening,so I went a&e and was seen by a lady nurse,and was told everything is fine and she refused to do a scan for me.i told her the pain was unbearable and she just said go home and rest.Wich I did, until the next day I asked my partner to take me to st georges hospital and he did and that's where they said my tube has ruptured and I had to have immediate surgery.and lost my right tube due to st helier being so ignorant and neglecting me when I needed them.they were meant to help me but now we cant conceive,ive even been on clomid and ive been told ivf is the only was of me becoming pregnant.its so upsetting I also have to fund my own ivf because I don't live in wandsworth where its free I live in Carshalton.Im 22 and shouldn't have to go through this!!!!
