"the nurses was very friendly al ..."

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the nurses was very friendly al of the time

What could be improved

they should have checked i was the patient who they thought i was before giving mne the news that i had miscarried when they actually hadthe wrng patients notes. and they should get second oppinions on things because the nurse who looked atmy ultrasound scan said she could see somtng in my tubes which meant eptopic and after i had the op to remove it when it was not eptopic after all a doctor relooked at the origional scan photos and said he could see nothing in the tubes so i was paniced , upset and whent through the op for nothing also i had 2 choices either an op or an injection to abort the eptopic it was jsut lucky i chose the op because if id chosen the injection i would have killed my baby thinking it was eptopic forever, and luckily as i had the op im still pregnent even though its early days

Anything else?

i was told i ws six weeks pregnant when i knew i was only 3 so that is why the baby never showed up on the scan because i was not far enough gone but they would not listen and the op could have been avoided if they just listened because 3 weeks after they confirmed that i was 6 weeks which meant 3 weks previous i was only 3 weeks like i said. I have completely lost trust ad faith in them and do not believe a wrd they say as they have been wrong about everything so far with regards to my pregancy, i also suffer with depression and cannot take anti depressantsanymore becaue im pregnant and after all of this rollercoaster it nearly tipped me over the edge.
