"Blood clot"

About: Rotherham Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I tested positive for a blood clot on my lung and was told I was going to have a cat scan the next day. I never had the scan and they didn't tell me why but I had to have a needle in my stomach each night I was in hospital to thin my blood. I had pluracy and pnumonia also. The nurses were nice to me but one of them was nasty to an old lady on my ward.
