Went in because my local GP suspected appendicitis. After being poked and prodded by the emergency doctor who didn’t believe that I could have appendicitis, and being sent to ultrasound where they didn’t notify the doctor on call that I was being sent after, I was put on IV fluids and not allowed the toilet, which resulted in me peeing myself. Results came back that I had appendicitis and that a surgeon would need to see me. Two and a half hours later I’m still waiting.
I haven't eaten since 9 am and it is now 10 pm. When I asked the nurses what was happening they just smiled at me and walked away.
