My mother in law had been unwell for a few days- she had her gallbladder removed last year and has had some grumbles since then, but this was persistent. On Tuesday evening the pain became worse and she began vomiting.
She called 111 around 8. 30pm and was quickly put through to a nurse who arranged an emergency ambulance. The paramedics did initial heart checks at home and then transferred her to hospital for full assessment. She was admitted to Monklands Hospital and is now awaiting surgery following tests that have confirmed stones in her bile duct.
We would like to thank all staff involved in identifying the urgency of the situation and arranging prompt emergency care for her.
