"Constant disappointment in many departments"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

I will keep my message brief as my vision is limited

I've had endless miscommunications at dgh and have been lost in system so many times that I feel pretty much forgotten

This particular complaint is with neurology whom I last saw on 24/7/15

A new wonderful doctor actually looked into my huge set of notes and studied my case

They found something others had missed on various MRI scans

Diagnose intracranial pressure linked with something benign in my pituitary gland

Filled me fiull of hope and requested immediate apts with opthamology ( which I have had) and an urgent lumbar puncture which I haven't had still at end November

No idea who I chase yet again

Patience running out

Vision getting so bad I've had to write this I. Stages

Headaches vomiting black outs n balance issues

Yet I appear by yet another specialty to have been lost in system

I have no faith in dgh at all

Sad as worked there for 9 years happily until I got too sick to work

Was then kicked out fast n even as a patient I'm unhappy
