"Nobody listened"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham)

I had a emergency laporotomy only 7 months ago

Not one member of staff on the ward I was on

Believed me when I said I felt my new scar coming undo

To keep it short

I was sent home

Then back and forth to the hospital district nurses coming in and then rushed back in to the qe for a 2nd emergency operation all within 3 weeks all because staff thought they new better

And I'm still recovering and my scar still hasn't healed

Never never never again.
