"Donating a kidney to my husband.."

About: Leicester General Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

The whole experience has been a nightmare. I have been left in debilitating pain since donating one of my kidneys. Doctors who I have seen have later denied seeing me.

I feel I have been lied to, passed a copy of MIMS to point out a drug that I would like prescribed - it almost felt like abuse. I cannot work anymore and have to fight for every penny provided to be able to live.

My husband is doing very well but should I be left like this? I have a copy of my medical records so I do know what has been done to me.
