Went to hospital in severe pain and strugling to breathe on 12/03/2013. Had xrays and given pain killers and told nothing seriously wrong with me. At 4.30 am 13/03/2013
paramedics called and after twenty minutes of working on me was rushed to hospital
with collapsed lung and multiple blood clots on the other. After spending a full day down stairs supposedly beeing assessed was admitted to the emergency assessment ward. Only to be told at 9.40 that I was being discharged and to come back at 10.30 14/03/21013. I have now been told that I need to visit the hospital every day which, if I could breathe properly would be a ten minute walk, how ever because I can't it takes an hour and a half. Being on benefits I cannot afford bus or taxi fares.
While all this was happening to me my mother who was rightly concerned and worried
was trying to find out what my condition was. She was given no help or informationation. I find the treatment of both myself and mother absolutely disgusting.
Had I a choice Iwould never enter this hospital again.
