"Out of hours failed me"
Posted by Patricia
I have to say normally this department are excellent but this one time you failed me. I attended out of hours dept on Saturday night, finding it hard to breathe. Dr said you may have the start of a chest infection, then refused to give me any antibiotics, as the doctor said you can become resist to them if you have them too often. But the point is, I was short of breath, and the doctor did nothing to help me. So my son took me to Grimsby hospital A&E who had to put me on a Nebuliser. I have fluid in my lungs, I keep coughing, fluid gets coughed up, then it settles afew mins until fluid builds up again, then I can't breathe again, still got it! Had to have ambulance out yesterday who took me to Scunthorpe A&E, they only prescribed Antihistimines, which helped alittle but didn't resolve/cure the problem. 111, when I rang them cos I didn't tick all their basic boxes even had the cheek to ask me if I had Munchausens syndrome! No I don't!! I am not making this up, not seeking attention, I'm not that bored. I just have fluid in my lungs and wanted help, but you failed me. I just want to be able to breathe!
