"I am now worse than when I came in"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill) / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

In January I went to Kings College Hospital A&E with Lower Abdominal Pain after havin an Operation in Guildford for a Twisted Bowel. Arriving in Kings A&E, waited about 30-45mins in Reception before being taken to Majors with a Nurse..

It was very fast, saw the Nurse, had Blood taken&was fitted with a Canula then saw an A&E Doctor then not long after that I saw the Surgeons..

A lil while after I was Admitted to Cotton Ward where I currently am at the moment - 9 days later! ! Seen the same Doctor all week&over the weekend, had another Canula fitted yesterday by the Doctor and was told that if the new Medication they had put Me on wasn't helping then they were going to take Me down to Theatre..

Now this morning I wake up&see a different Doctor to the one I've been seeing all week/Over the weekend and He said there is No need to take Me down to Theatre&He is gonna get the Pain Team to see Me.. Now I'm Sorry but I was told by the Doctor I've been seeing all week told Me that I'd be going to Theatre the next day for a Laparoscopy, I was Nil by Mouth from Midnight.

I really hope I don't see that doctor in the morning because I am really/do not wish to leave the Hospital unless they take Me to Theatre &explore my Stomach to see what's going on..

I had an Ultrasound during the week which showed problems, so they need to take Me to Theatre &explore this and/or remove the Cyst! ! Also may add my Stomach has Swollen up to twice the size it usually is, so there is something going on inside Me but the doctors don't seem too bothered!

I am currently havin different pain killing medicines.. Also havin IV Diclofenac. And because any Food&Drink I'm havin Comes back up all the time, I'm havin to have IV Cyclizine every 8hrs to keep stuff down..If I have it Orally then it comes back up! !

These Doctors need to take Me to Theatre because I am no better, I am worse than how I actually came in and its not good enough to leave Me like this.
