About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

I went to my doctors with back pain and they just se t me away. I couldn't cope so I then we t to royal the next day I also got sent away. I then returned to my doctors three days later I then cokapsed in the doctors room and she rang for an ambulance. I arrived at the hospital and i had to then sign my self in I then stood at the desk for 40 minutes before I got seen baring in mind I was vomiti g in to one of them brown bowls while standing there I fi ally got seen to and got given a bed with in 2 hours. (still down the stairs) that night past then it came to morning the doctors came round I then gave blood and when for a back x Ray. They could t find anything more blood test got done and then later in the afternoon I got put on to a bowl ward be cause there was no room in the ward I needed to be in. My doctor then came round and took more bloods! I then got digonosed with blood clots so I had to have warfin. I then went for a ct scan on my lungs to find the blood clot they found it but then there was one on my right leg. I then got more bloods taken and a student doctors has now messed up the vein in my hand! I then got sent home I got my results through the post and my iron levels where dangerously low. My doctor rang me when she hot my results and i had to go back the hospital as I was on deaths door! Then the hospital kept me for yet another week just to monortor me on my medication then said 'am sorry the last time you was in I forgot to ask you for a water sample to check if you are pregnant. We normally have to do it before had so no harms comes to the baby if you ate pregnant' I then got sent home and refared to a spine doctor he sent me for a scan the one that like a polo? And then digonosed me with a curve on the spine. I was dye an appointment last month but yet have not received a letter. So good look to me having to go back tomorrow to a and e with a broken wrist. Let the fun beging. Oh by the way when I got admitted to hospital it was last year and I was only 16
