I'm hoping someone here can help me. I just got back from the hospital and to be perfectly honest, I'm not very confident in their findings or lack thereof.
My side's been hurting for a couple of days, starting off gradual and then getting increasingly sharp. Yesterday, I got a little fever. Today, I almost passed out, I got the shakes in the middle of work, and couldn't walk. So...my boss called an ambulance for me.
After 911 hung up on us, we called again and finally got someone to show up. They took me to the hospital where I curled up in pain for two hours, waiting for the doctor to show up. Finally, the desk nurse had to track him down.
After His Highness graced me with his presence, he had someone take blood samples, told me to pee in a cup, and then had me go to radiology for a CAT scan.
After all of that, I was given morphine.
Two hours after that, a nurse comes in and tells me I'm free to go. "The doctor diagnosed you with a fainting spell."
I never once passed out. She checked the charts, realized she had the wrong one, and left.
Finally the doctor comes in and says nothing's wrong as he gives me a prescription for Vicodin.
I'm starving, but I'm not willing to eat--the last time I ate, my side all but killed me and involved a trip to that ER.
