on July 26th i went to my local hospital cause i had severe pain on my lower left side of my stomach and had a hard time peeing. they did blood work that was fine did a urine test that was fine so they had me drink 2 glasses of icky stuff so they can do a ct scan. well the dr came in and told me i had a kidney stone on my left side that was in my bladder ready to pass any day so he gave me a strainer to catch the stone and gave me some viccodin for pain. by that thursday i was in so much pain i was in tears and started throwing up but refused to go to er. i had the urge to pee but couldnt. by sunday going into monday i got pain on my right side that hurt really bad so i went back to the er they did not run any tests on me at all and said it was my kidney stone meanwhile i was told it was on left side but now they tell me it was on both but mor so on right all they did was give me toradol, morphone,dolitated and sent me home. i suffered this pain for a few days until around 11:30 thursday night the pain on my right side was so unbearable i couldnt walk so my husband called an ambulance and had them take me to a different hospital that was 30 mins away. i got there they ran blood test,urine test got resluts from other hospital and did another ctscan he came in and said the scan showed i had no more stones so they must have passed but i did have a kidney infection and if i would of waited any longer i could have been really ill and hospitalized. OMG are they serious if i would of went to the original hospital they would of said it was my kidney stone. how could a hospital be so neglectful??? my husband has been trying to get ahold of person in charge of the hospital and inform them of their drs misdiagnosing me. they better be glad i cant sue them but i talked to my attorney and she said that isnt grounds but yet i almost suffered dramsitcally. so now i am on percocet and cipro hope it goes away although i am still in alot of pain.
