My husband took me to Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan late last Friday night as I was suffering from severe pain under my rib cage, into my chest and back.
I was seen pretty quickly and given morphine for pain relief as soon as possible. The Doctors in A&E were very patient and explained everything very well.
I was admitted to Swinley Ward overnight and told by the consultant the following day the my pain was probably caused by a hiatus hernia and gall stones.
I was treated fantastically on the ward particularly by a young student called Paula and a staff nurse called Laura, they were caring and compassionate and treated all the patients with the upmost care and respect.
I was allowed home later that day when I felt better and will need to attend outpatients for follow up tests.
