"Dreadful Experience"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

After being admitted urgently the lack of care, communication and compassion was dreadful. After waking up from what was to be keyhole surgery to realising has had more done, not knowing if I had had a hysterectomy or why I had been opened up!, Left 10 plus hours not being told what had happened except by an over imposing nurse who really didn't know.

No pain relief as no plan in place for my medical requirement.

Had to literally beg and scream for some kind of pain relief totally inhuman and unacceptable. Having many allergies the pain management nurse was abrupt, dismissive and rude left me in unacceptable pain.

A very traumatic experience.
