"My mum has been in 3 times now ..."

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My mum has been in 3 times now for the same problem, they give her a morphine injection pain killers and send her away. Within a couple of days she is in agony again, evertime they have sent her away. As my mum is a recovering alcoholic I worry about everything. She went in again last night with sever back and abdominal pain, and vomiting. They kept her in told us her Liver was infected and inflamed and her blood levels were low, also her eseouphogus was inflammed. So what do they do say they need the bed and discharge her with nothing this morning!!!!! No treatment, painkillers, follow up appointment or much advise, my mum felt they were very helpless and have worried her, but she is too soft to voice her concerns. Not happy at all. I know it will only be a matter of days before she is in agony again and going back there!
