"Very upset"

About: Newham General Hospital / Gynaecology

I'm pregnant in 5 weeks .. I come in the emergency because I was bloodying.. I wait 7-8 hours .. They didn't give me something to stop the blood.. They told me to come back after 2 days.. I make the appointment.. They take me the blood, they make me the scan.. After they told me to come back again after 2 days to make me again the scan.. At the second scan it's was a doctor, I don't want to give the name , they didn't know to make me the scan.. Was coming another doctor to make me the scan.. In the end they told me that I have a cervical pregnancy, when I ask how many weeks I have they didn't told me because they didn't know it :) it's possible something like this?! I don't think so.. Anyway after this they make me an appointment to make the operation.. And when I was coming in th hospital at the hour they told me to come.. I must to wait like 8-9 hour or more.. So to stay without eating or drinking something 24 hour it's not possible! If i ask the nurse about the doctor they respond without respect and very rude!

In my opinion if a woman pregnant is coming in the hospital because she was bleeding and she must to wait too much hours too see if the person is ok or not.. I don't have words..!

I'm very upset !
