"my visit to a&e at royal sussex county"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

on wednesday 16th of july i was in tremendous pain and my stomach was swollen and finding it hard to breath so i called 111 and they told me to call an ambulance which i did . on arrival at rsch i was handed over from ambulance crew to nursing staff and put in cubicle and was assessed by nurse and blood taken . after 2-3 hours i had to ask for pain relief whilst still waiting for doctor to visit and when he did arrive he just had a feel and put it down to stomach bug . i went to my doctor the next day and she is not happy that no scan of stomach area was done and believes i could have cysts
