I was sent to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in King's Lynn to be seen by a gynaecologist who was abrupt, rude and belittling. I was sent for a scan to be checked for cysts on my ovaries, but the consultant dismissed the idea, leaving me in pain.
I was then passed onto the surgical team to be checked for bowel problems, which they claimed was definitely a gynae problem.
So I was left waiting around even longer, waiting (or thought I was) to see a gynae to be told I wasn't and that I wasn't going to be scanned now as it wasn't done after 19:00.
Great. I had been there since 13:30 to be told this at 20:00. I had more waiting to see a dr, who eventually turned up at 22:45 to tell us there was no guarantee of getting a scan the next day and was going to discharge with some pain relief and to wait for an appointment to go to outpatient.
