I had to have a full hysterectomy do to cin III on cervix. Leaving 1 ovary on left side. About 3 weeks post op I started having severe pain on my right side and flank. Went to er they said I had cyst on left ovary and swollen left kidney and blockage in urethra. Sent me home a day or two after I was unable to urinate after 2 days of not being able to pee my chest started hurting and shortness of breath. Through out this I'm calling dr to get in and wasn't seen so I went back to er and after being triage my oxygen level was 84, blood pressure low and heart rate high, they did chest x ray and ekg was told it was pulmonary embolism,after 16 tries to get an iv started they ended up putting one in my neck. Then did CT scan. After that they saw cyst and swollen right kidney, blockage in urethra and cyst on pelvic and ovary. I was admitted for 4 days. Was given antibiotics and a Foley catheter was placed and I wasn't feeling well still. Against my judgment I was sent home with catheter. Since I was released more symptoms have came up. I woke up with a pretty big painful nodule under my chin, dizziness, loss of appetite. The hospital told me before being released to get a central line placed. The problem is now I feel worse than I did before going into hospital and MD said that there isn't anything she could do i need to go back to er. I'm scared to go back to hospital because they just band aid the problem with no solution. Please help
