"3 weeks of pain!"

About: Watford General Hospital

I entered Watford A&E on easter Sunday! The A&E staff were amazing! On the Wednesday the surgical team decided to take my appendix out. I wasn't given any info on this procedure. My mum and partner asked many times how it was going as I was in theatre for 4 hours instead of 2 but they were given no info. When I came round I couldn't walk for 5 days! But was told to just get on with it. I have had to attend the hospital 5 times since this operation with stomach pains, it's to the point now where I spend every day in bed in tears. But to be discharged each time to be told to get on with it I think is disgusting. The doctors have no communication skills and seem to palm patients of to other departments at every opportunity they can! I'll never be returning ill look at finding an alternative hospital!
