When getting ready to leave for home after a few days in, the nurse didn't take my IV line out right away, she said she forgotten something and wouldn't be more than a minute... She never returned, ... more 5minutes passed and my arm was swelling by the 10min mark, my arm was three times it's normal size, I got up and went to the nurses station, I forgot to mention, I had buzzed them continually and told them repeatedly what was happening to my arm, I kept getting the just a minute... So, after going to the nurses station and there's like 6 of them standing aground laughing I showed them my arm, and yet no one seemed to care, I got the, someone will be right there AGAIN, needless to say nearly 25minutes all together passed before it was finally taken out and the size of my arm was completely overlooked... Well, since that lovely occasion I've had problems in that arm, oddly enough im having to have this lump now cut out from under my arm, this started after that visit... Btw, I've got pictures, it wouldn't let me post them, but, by golly someone's gonna definitely be seeing them real soon now!
I came into the E.R. I've been having blood in my stool. Dr confirmed it was blood in my stool. They drew blood. Did a scan. Then had shift change. Haven't seen a nurse nor have I gotten my results. Four... more hours after labs and scan and shift change. No I.V. and nothing for pain and nausea.
