I went into Buffalo Hospital with very bad stomach pain. They did an ultrasound and i was told my pain was because of cysts on my liver. They informed me to schedule an outpatient CT because it was nothing... more urgent. I asked what i could do or what i could take to get this pain to go away, knowing that Tylenol or ibuprofen wouldn’t help, and was told to just go home and rest. I was looked at like all i was looking for was drugs. I was home for maybe 2 hours and ended up heading back to the Maple Grove hospital where they did an emergency CT and found that my appendix was about to rupture.. i ended up having emergency surgery and am in recovery right now.
Just reading notes of my medical record.. Very surprised and totally offended by the judgement by the nursing -front desk "In-Take" staff. noted "patient could walk in easily without evidence of discomfort,... more after arrival complained of severe pain, concern of drug seeking behavior" This hospital should hire compassionate humans that actually will "care" for patients. I will never go back!! I was hunched over gripping my gut and shuffling my feet to the entrance door and a nurse actually met me with a wheelchair to get into the lobby! Gallstones and ruptured ovarian cyst, had a biliary obstruction of gallbladder duct. Thankfully Maple Grove hospital treated me with immediate compassionate care the moment I arrived at their door. I think the nurses are the ones seeking and sneaking the drugs!
