Hi guys I'm back again 6 weeks in agony and still waiting. Last week my gp sent me up to the surgical assessment centre and what a waste of time. When I saw her I was in a lot of pain, no temperature but really hot and clammy and my heart rate was 115-120! Got there waited for 7 hrs just to have bloods taken and be sent home 😠 my bloods showed up an infection but not high enough to keep me in and they refused to give me anything for the infection as they don't know where or why I have it. They never did any blood pressure or heart rate checks while I was there either. My options was to stay in on a morphine drip but I'd have to sit in the waiting room on a chair all night! What a joke! They'd have been treating me for injuries from falling off the chair if I had done that lol. Since then I have now started with pain in my left side as well as my right and pain across my mid to upper back and my nausea is getting worse by the day add dizzyness and heart palpatations to that and its really geting me worried. Just called the drs this morning to see someone after a terrible night in pain and I even woke up at one point soaking wet with sweat and feeling really ill and the nurse practitioner who was taking the calls basically said I can't see what more we can do for you til your endoscopy. I told him if they don't see me I'm off up to a&e and he backed down and gave me an appointment. The left sided pain is a concern especially with the ultrasound showing a dilated bile duct but no stones in my gallbladder (I'm worried something is blocking it) and in my immediate family there are heart conditions (my sister has a hole in her heart and a heart murmur and my dad had an heart attack before 50 as well as other things) am I worrying to much about all this? I just don't get why they're not showing any concern. I'm in agony right now across my back and my right side with nothing but over counter painkillers and a hot water bottle. Fed up doesn't begin to describe how I feel right now. Has anyone else ever felt like not enough was being done or that they've just hit a road block in treatment I'm just so fed up of arguing to be seen 😞😞😞
