"Rushed to hospital by ambulance suspected ovarian..."

About: New Cross Hospital

Having had to have a drip for the pain the ambulance man said I needed to go to hospital . He was brilliant as he knew I was in severe pain I really didn't want to go though as morphine base drip eventually calmed the pain and knew would be waiting hours in a + e. Eventually the ambulance man persuaded me, he was v kind. But when put in cubicle for 3 hours did have urine test and trainee doctor doing prodding etc nurse did blood pressure. But nothing being said just left there so I told the nurse wanted to go home . Nice doctor came to say I could go as stomach soft on right side so presume that means no internal bleeding? But no mention of scan ? Blood tests (which they would have found abnormal consistent with a viral infection!) as I had to go back to the doctors when discharged as very I'll. No mention of referring to gynacholgy ? Just felt all alone ?? still scared to have a period ?? now appt for gynaecolgy come through for June ???? As my Doc sorted that ! My Docter sorted out tablets to stop my period till then. this could have been sorted out all on the day if I wasn't off my head on morphine based drug and I was communicated with. Feel so alone.
