Absolute lack of communication. If you have PCOS and aren't pregnant then don't go !
Been diagnosed with PCOS not too long ago but have had the symptoms of it for about a year. Got diagnosed by... more my gp. Went into ED at about 1:30 AM Monday morning with severe pain in my ovaries and uterus and swelling legs. They did a pregnancy test which came back negative but showed I had some sort of infection in my urine which I've had for weeks!
So anyway they feel my tummy and it was super sensitive. The midwife and gynaecologist on at that time were the only nice staff I've dealt with there. I got told if get a phone call at about 8 AM regarding an ultrasound so I can get it done asap and then see the gynaecologist straight after with the results. Got sent home with tremadol which didn't work and only gave me lucid dreams.
Called up Monday at about 3pm asking what's going on to be told be the ultrasound department that I've been marked as non-urgent and need to wait six weeks!!! Hung up and called the ED department asking why this is happening. They apologised and ask if I can take more tremadol and call up Tuesday morning as they said it was urgent.
Called up this morning (Tuesday) as I got told by the midwife in ER that the ultrasound people should have called by 8am. So anyway I call the ultrasound department and told them I got told to call it I don't get a phone call by 8 am and the woman laughed and asked who told me that. I told her the midwife in ER yesterday as I was urgent.
She asked for all my details and told me I had to wait two weeks!!
We hung up again and called ER asking what was going on and they said that I'm marked as non-urgent and there's nothing they can do about it. I explained my whole situation. Still nothing they can do.
Absolutely disgusting, missed work and still not in any better state then I was when I first arrived in ER.
