"I need to know more information about my kidney"

About: Northern General Hospital / Nephrology Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust

(as the patient),

I found the NHS ambulance was terrible on my way to the Northern General. I felt like they were talking to me like I was a criminal. Then at the hospital I waited for about two hours for treatment. When I was at the Royal Hallamshire I passed a stone and I still do not know if I have more stone in my kidney and if my kidney is a stone maker or not. I think I need to know more information about it. They also put a very large needle to my vein to inject paracetamol and left the needle for three days. Now my vein is hurting me so bad. I mean my vein has become so hard and I cannot even touch it.
