I had a cyst remove on my right ovary I woke up in agony I had had a lot of bleeding from the surgery and had a drain and was on morphine when I arrived at ward 2 the staff where nice enough but I was pretty out of it from anaesthetic and the pain killers I was more awake later at nite when they had the agency nurses in and I was appalled they where very rough when trying to so their checks and woke me up only for her to discover I had bleed from my incisions and the bed and myself where covered in blood they then left me for an hour and a half in my own blood ! I call several times and they said they would do it in a bit it came to the point when the woman opposite me went and found them and told then to clear up the blood i asked if I could see the doctor so I could find out why I had so much bleeding and the response I got was it's 1 in the morning it's gonna take forever ! The attitude was discussing when the finally changed the bed they where very forceful with me as I couldn't get out at the time I finally fell asleep the day staff where nice and friendly and gave me pain killers when needed I was there a few days and then I was practically kicked out I said should I really be going when I'm still bleeding into the drain there response was it's fine and then practicall ripped it out of me I was in so much pain I screamed and was crying and their response was it doesn't hurt that much the following nite at home I had a high temp but went to bed and took my antibiotics but woke up about 4 and was being sick none stop for about 2 hours my mom then called the ambulance and they took me in with a temp of 102 I was given intravenous antibiotics and they said they would do an ultra sound to make sure I wasn't bleeding internally they decided not to do so and sent me home the following nite I took my tablets again but this time I woke up in a panic attack my hands face and legs where numb and I had severe sickness again so mom called ambulance again and I was taken to a&e where I was told I have septicaemia and my body is in shock after spending 6 hours in a&e because they had no beds apparently granted I left earlier that day and the ward had a total of 3 people in it I was finally taken up to a room with 6 empty beds and they said u can choose wich one u want what a joke !!! I was taken for an X-ray and then brought back to the ward it was now about half 6 in the morning and the staff where starting to change over I was very tired but as it was the morning rounds I was kept awake I saw my nurse from the past week walk past and I could here her talk to the other nurses so I was very shocked and upset when they started making fun and laughing about the fact I was back again not really what I needed after a nite from hell they kept me in and finally did an ultrasound and found a large amount of blood so I had to have another laprocopic to drain the blood I had 500ml plus clots !! And the response I got was no wounded u where in pain really !!!!
