I was taken by ambulance from work with excruciating pain in my side, ambulance staff were excellent and I was taken to Stafford A&E.
I was seen very quickly and after being asked questions and put on a drip I was x rayed which did not pick anything up. They decided to take me for a scan and this showed a kidney stone. Luckily the stone was small enough for me to pass without an operation and I was allowed home.
The care I received from the staff was excellent and the diagnosis was very quick. I do not relish the same pain again and was very glad it was sorted so quickly.
Thank you Stafford! This event happened earlier this year 2014 about February.
