"looked after very well by all Depts"

About: Rotherham Hospital

Anything else?

Rushed to A&E in the early hours of a Saturday morning in extreme pain in upper abdomin. They checked me over and within ten minuets they were treating me getting blood tests and pain killers into me . Its fair to say i was scared and worried as I have never had anything like this so I was in fear of the unknown but the Staff were brilliant putting me at ease and explaining everything that was going on . Eventually my blood tests came back and they said it was pointing to my gall bladder (amazing how they figure that out from a drop of blood) Was then sent to ward B5 and later to B4 wards and on the Sunday Morning has a scan which showed they were spot on with what was wrong with me . The doctors ,nurses right down to the tea lady were great with me and I cannot thank them enough. from entering the hospital to leaving they were fantastic with me -thank you to all involved with me .
