My last post hasnt posted so will try again. A relative of mine had gone to A and E as she was weak had loss of appetite for a few weeks had a bloated stomach and discomfort mainly in the upper right side.she was put on a saline drip given antibiotics and paracetamol whilst there.She also had a temperature. She was moved to a ward .she had blood tests came back ok and urine too which was not ok.The staff were attentive the last consultant was not and he said what made you feel you should come to A and E and then come to this ward? Stupid thoughtless question! She did not reply immediatley as it took her back. So she said again her symptims to him. He said you WILL not be staying over night in the ward and you WILL be leaving today. She was told to await a scan the next day by getting a call from the hospital to come in. So she recieved a call and had a scan on her abdomen.it showed she has galstones in her galbladder.She was told to await a referral for an appointment to have an op to remove her galbladder .the appointment will take a couple of weeks to come through. So she has since come home but is worse.she has taken to bed as she is weak and cannot eat hardly anything and has been sick. Shes got uncomfortable pain to her right side still and is so unsteady on her feet hence staying in bed. I am concerned she has an infection in her albladder ir further problems of the galstone blocking and even in her pancreas after reading her symtoms similar to those showing complications on this sites information of galstones in the galbladder. I am worried she has not been given enough investigation into it and its worsening the longer its left . What can be done ? Shehas diabetes 2 as well.
