"Spent 3 days in scarborough hospital 23/4/14"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

I was admitted via A&E with Extreme Abdominal pain had Xray to which a surgeon told me I need to stay in over night this was at about 5pm, I was then moved onto Holly ward and from there I had no visit from any doctor what so ever this went on till Thursday night and the only so called pain killers they gave me where paracetomol which had zero effect on the pain, the Nurses/cares where very good in Holly ward, After asking if I could have my prescription meds I was told no, even though I take 8 a day for back pain. I was told to move beds into Maple ward to which I was given eventually Tramadol and paracetomal , still in pain I asked for something else and was given Morphine which I broke out in rash on my throat and had asthma attack ,so I had to have extra meds to counter act the morphine. On the morning of Friday the 25th i got my first visit from Surgeon/Consultant and was told that at 11.20am i was going for Scan which shows Abdominal wall defect and cyst on right testical , then to be told there's nothing wrong ??? Also had blood test again on Friday and never was told the results from that ? Then I was in and out of bed for the rest of the day waiting for mysterious blood test, as a carer told me my scan was clear ? still waiting for blood results , then carer said I can go home (nice) still in pain the same as I went in, only to read discharge paper , Which says (Patient is well ?, No further pain ? Medically fit for discharge ?, Now what gets me is how the hell do they know I am well , no further pain and medically fit, When no one came to see me what so ever ? ,
