I experianced kidney stones and gallbladder stones.
Doctors & hospitial kept saying nothing was wrong and gave me pain medication and sent me home.
My potassium levels dropped to 2.1 and I experianced muscle spasms severe in my legs,weakness and heart pounding.
I was given an antibiotic for an infection that damaged my heart valves.
Turns out the medication caused C Difficle and the medication for that caused problems.
Turns out I had kidney stones and gallbladder removed due to stones.Why did they miss this and how could they miss this?
I was subjected to far to many catscans with contrast dye in a short period of time which down the road lead to problems.
I had to seek medical attention in an other City before I got treated.Why did Peterborough Screw up?
Still have problems now with fluid retention in legs

  • I went in for a Gallbladder test myself. They said it was functional but just okay. Sounds like you could have a law suit on your hand, maybe contacting a lawyer might be advisable for you. They're making your illness worse they should pay... Other than that, I always thought Doctors were the Holy Shrine of Medical Answers. Actually they still are learning a lot themselves. Good luck and becareful who you trust no matter who they are. Be Objective and Inform Yourself

  • It is frustrating. Did you ever go as far as the ER with this?
