"admitted and left no better"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

i was admitted to hospital and was told i was getting checked for my appendix's which they never once checked for the just checked my stomach by hand and gave me an ultra sound and they told me you cant even see appendix's through a ultrasound so a waste of time, they just put me on morephene and left me till doctors wanted to turn up, so i was discharged after nearly 3 days with pain killers no antibiotics or no clue what was wrong still now i am in absolutely bad pain and went back only to be given more pain killers. this is not on i pay for care and im still very ill with no clue what is wrong and refuse to go back up because of lack of care.
