My Hospital Experience!
Due to my disaster at Birmingham i went up to Frome Hospital on Monday 23rd April, to see my GP about whats happened because i knew there was something wrong. They thought it was my appendix so they referred me to Bath RUH Childrens Ward. I was in constant pain, it was always aching and shooting.
By this time i had explained my story so many times and it was getting so annoying. When i got there i had to have a blood test done and they kept the needle in my hand for the whole 4 days i was in hospital, it was actually painful when i moved my hands sometimes. For the first couple days nothing was done- just constant re-explaining my story.
On the 3rd day i had an UltraSound Scan booked, my nan came with me to that due to my mum going home to get some rest. Nothing was shown on my scan and all my bloods and temperatures were fine, strange! My mum stayed the first 2 nights but on the 3rd she left me on my own which was quite scary at first. On the 3rd night i had a pain attack while i was going for a walk on my own, i called my mum hysterically to come and get me due to being crippled over in pain. Luckily the Registrar seen me in all this pain and kept my in one night more.
On the Thursday morning they discharged me and diagnosed me with MESENTERIC ADINITIS which they weren’t sure on. A few times during my stay i was nil by mouth which in the end they never did any surgery which was so annoying. The phrase ‘hospital food is horrible’ is kind of true. For breakfast i had toast every morning and sometimes at 10 at night. For tea every day i had a Tuna jacket Pototo as there wasnt much choice! And for pudding i had a little pot of ice cream :)
My mum brought me little treats down and my nans, cousin, grandma, dad and brothers and sisters came to visit me; which was very nice! So i went home on Thursday with some ibuprofen and paracetamol which at the time seemed to help! Slowly and surely i started getting better and got back on my bike, i was feeling goood! i had a total of 2 weeks off school and on the 3rd week i started going half days and coming home at lunch, i was so tired! It was so nice to see all much friends though. But the bad thing was i missed the first 2 regionals because of hospital:(
