I had a pessary inserted for a mild prolapse at 9.30am on 15/3/2016. I was informed that it would be painful for a few weeks by the doctor as other ladies reported this who had had same treatment. As the pain was increasing by the minute I asked if this was normal and informed it was. I took painkillers at 10.00am 500mg paracetomal 30gr codeine (2). At 1.45 I called the hospital as I had taken a repeat of painkillers and pain was constantly increasing. I was told by ward nurse to take ibruprofen which would have resulted in an overdose plus allergic to aspirin. Told not to come back to hospital but to go to A@E. At 5pm Queens hospital arrived and by 6pm given morphine which did not remove pain. Had pessary removed and pain immediately went. Pessary was too low and made it impossible for me to sit as it pressurizing my anus and leg nerves. I have cancelled my follow up appointment today with this hospital. Will continue my treatment with Queens Hospital Romford Essex.
