I was wrongly discharged from the children's outpatients. The consultant gave me two options and because I didn't take either I am now left with long term constipation and my Bowels are full. I told them I would be willing to do anything that I felt comfortable with but they said because I didn't agree with what they were offering, there was no point in me being there. I am now left with pains in my stomach and other symptoms and I am a 15 year old child left to deal with something that has such a massive impact on my life. I had a different consultant who I cannot praise enough. I have had them for most of the duration of the time I have been visiting the RVI outpatients. But unfortunately they retired and I was referred over to this new consultant. This new consultant had a 5 minute appointment, didn't read through my notes because if they did they would realise why I don't like operations. This doctor doesn't understand me or my Bowels. I am trying myself to get back to the outpatients but because I have now been discharged I am so so so scared I will never get back there because people don't reliase how serious the situation is. I feel very hopeless. It didnt help the fact that the doctor was rude to me and was mocking my life. They went "your a 15 year old girl and you still have constipation". I begged them not to discharge me and my guardian doesn't seem to care, so I'm left to my own devices and it doesn't help that I'm a hypochondriac.
