"More should have been done to help me at Rotherham District"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

I was sent by my G.P to Rotherham District General Ward B4 as blood tests showed my liver functions were high. I was in severe pain and I was put on pain killers for the length of my stay (5 days) and told to rest, which resulted in my blood test at the hospital coming back normal. I had a scan and they told me I had gall stones and sent me home to wait for an MRI scan date. After 2 weeks I went to my GP again with abdominal pains - I can't work because my job is quite heavy and it affects my stomach - I was told to see a consultant on May 15th to be told I had to have my gall bladder out. At this moment in time I am still in pain, and my liver functions are still high, my GP has done all she can and she has even faxed the hospital for them to try and get me an appointment. I think that further investigation should have been done when I went to the hospital in the first place.
