My husband rushed yet again to A&E around 6am yesterday with acute abdominal pain, already knowing ive cysts on both ovaries and being on a 18 week waiting list (at another hospital)
Within 2 hours i was sent via ambulance to a different hosiptal where they have a gynae ward. I was given 2 lots of oral morphine and paracetamol. After another scan it showed that the smallest cyst is now measuring 14x9x11 its a big difference from 4cm when i was first diagnosed. I was put on a drip and left nil by mouth while waiting for another consultant. At 6pm she came back and said i was the first to down for surgery this morning.
This morning I was prepped ready in gown, stockings and already taken medication. She came to me around 9.30am asked a few questions, prodded at my stomach and said the sugery was cancelled because i wasnt in as much pain and hadnt had any pain relief over night. As i was first diagnosed last july ive learnt to control the pain and not take as many pain killers unless in desparate need.
By 1.30pm i was sent home. To say i am upset, gutted and annoyed is an understatement. I am sick of being in pain, since last July ive already been under 3 consultants and have attended 5 different hospitals.
I just dont know what else to do now.
