I was admitted to FPH late Wednesday night. With severe abdominal / lower quadrant pain. I was first met by very friendly, very helpful staff. Staff that proceeded to administer necessary tests and moving me to a comfortable ward. Sadly, this ward is where I have been left. For well over 48 hours now, without any explanation of what they are testing for, what implications this may have to my future health or how best to deal with this pain. I have received a CT scan and an ultrasound, 42 hours ago these were carried out, and still I am told they have no results. The worst part is not knowing, it is far from medical negligence, it is simply bedside manner. I am left alone all day every day, being told " I'm unable to answer that, sorry, the next doctor comes on shift in an hour, they'll be able to tell you more". Then, for the past two nights, I have been woken at exactly 2am, to be asked personal questions, and this morning, to have more bloods taken. It's all very confusing, and they've pushed me to a point of feeling worse, and with no hope of finding out the root cause of this.
I understand medicine is ever so complicated, and my condition is so broad, I may never know. I just ask to be kept better informed, and perhaps find results within a 48 hour window!
