"Severe abdominal pain"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Radiology Heartlands Hospital / Gastroenterology Heartlands Hospital / Radiology

(as a relative),

I have been in and out of hospital by ambulance with pain so severe feeling like collapsing 6 times this year and numerous times last year. Being told nothing wrong go home with pain killers. Doctors just keep throwing pills and morphine at me with no face to face consult. I have an appointment with a gastro consultant in November by phone?! Had a CT Scan all clear. Stools are very greasy and bloody. Excruciating abdo pain. 2 years now and I really cannot cope and have had enough. I need help urgently but no one wants to listen. I feel like giving up.
