Try a hot water bottle I have chronic back pain and it works a charm. Avoiding bending a lot helps too

Apologies not been on here as often and missed the story but hope things will get better soon.

I to had to make the dreaded NHS 111 call yesterday after a few hours of contemplating "I don't like to bother the NHS as they've got enough problems"

Finally decided to call them at 9.30pm and with my previous medical history an ambulance was called grrrrr

1hr later still no ambulance so I called them back to be told I need to call 999 wtf

Called 999 asked for ambulance, gave them all the details (NHS111, medical history, symptoms etc and that an ambulance had been called) to be told "Yes one is on it's way"

Approx 11pm ambulance turned up, did the relevant tests, confirmed I needed to go to hospital although I emphasized my hatred of staying in hospital and waiting to be seen and advised I had previously discharged myself early as I can't sit and watch paint dry whilst having no cuppa but they said it needed a blood test to confirm whether the condition was more serious and if ys would require urgent medical intervention.

By midnight I was at A&E.... don't get me wrong I love and respect 99% of the medical staff it's just the waiting and hospitals I hate... but on being examined by the first medical (cough) professional he began to take my temperature then he sneezed...wtf
Can any human being control their body's movements when sneezing? No so why did he think it was OK to continue to hold the thermometer thingy in my ear?? That was the beginning of the only pain during this current medical issue.

He then stood near his trays of needles and other similar blood taking devices and turned to look at me and said "Stuart Is it OK we can take some blood samples"

Next came the tourniquet(to take bloods), now this medical (cough) professional was built like a brick .... house (rugby player type) but more feminine than masculine, and that tourniquet went so tight I thought he was preparing to use it to remove my upper arm not just for bloods.

Next came what everyone knows as "Here comes the little prick". Now I have a high pain threshold except my teeth and eyes but that medical (cough) professional never said a dickie... wtf. No it didn't hurt I just suppose with my right ear being bruised and ripped off/punctured and that my left arm didn't belong to me because it was dying a slow painful death I took greater exception to his lack of "caring". I was never in any pain except that caused by this medical (cough) professional whilst in hospital.

Anyways 4 hrs later blood tests confirmed it was minor not major so when the doctor said I could go home (with some antibiotics to fight the chest infection that may have caused the secondary more serious illness) my happiness couldn't be more visible.

The two old girls, either side of me in the trolley waiting area, were pleased but couldn't grasp why I who had more severe illness was able to go home whilst they were both still stuck on their trolleys (one since 7pm) and with a wry smile I just turned to them and using my hands as demonstration said "Just grab em around the neck and tell them to treat you like I did"

TLDR
Had to call NHS111 9.30pm last night
Ambulance ordered
Ambulance delayed by over 2hrs
Taken to A&E
Two bad uncaring nursing staff the others were great
Got full diagnosis and with previous experience know what to do/what not to do
Discharged at 4.30am with a hospital only prescription that couldn't be dispensed as the pharmacy was closed from midnight
Taxi home, drinks about 3 gallons of tea....and breath

The only time that will stop is when I'm 6ft under

And going by my medical history it won't be long now

Although there was a guy in A&E about 20 years younger, supported by his 65+ year old mother who had more twitching that a drug addict on meth),who had the breath of a 105yr old miner with severe asthma/emphysema ,which they couldn't treat immediately because when he was first called he was outside having another fag and then needed vitamin (plus) fluids pumped intravenously into his body to reverse the damage from alcohol consumption who looked more likely he'd be gone before me...

A why is it that Toms/drug users who get taken to hospital "for precautionary reasons" by the police get treated immediately whilst others who have heart/breathing/bleeding injuries have to wait and wait and wait. She was escorted in talking and hardly anything visually wrong with her and she jumped the queue...just wtf

Hope all goes well for you

Concerned about your son also - who will look after him if you need the op?

As for going hungry / thirsty I know what you mean as I went through that last night but I don't mind the hunger it's the no tea that gives me more support to hate hospitals and get home as quick as possible to have the Breville One Cup pouring a third whilst mashing a second whilst I'm drinking the first cuppa

He is at home by himself with a nine week old puppy. A neighbour is looking in on him every now and then when she can but it isn't ideal. I have told them about my home situation several times but it cuts no mustard. He is now stressing as I probably won't be home in time for him to get to college on Thursday (puppy too young to leave, can't find a puppy sitter) sick to death with the whole situation

If you were my neighbour your puppy worries and lift to the college. for your son, on Thursday wouldn't be a worry. Sad that you have to worry whilst trying to get your health back - it can't help your situation and also sad to say it won't go noticed until it hits the fan but by then the damage could potentially be extensive. Could you drop your local MP a quick email? No it might not fix the issues but it'll give you someone to vent off to.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. It's just so frustrating. I'm stuck here because no one knows what is happening. You think someone could look at a nodding scan and make a decision in seven hours

We muddle through most of the time. Only when out of the blue stuff happens that it calls apart. Unfortunately I seem to be the only driver in Bradford and it is costing the earth in taxi fares being in and out of here. I'm used to being the one other people turn to when they need stuff sorting out not vice versa. Anyway, hopefully I'll be out tomorrow and I don't have to look like the Billy no mates in the corner with no one to visit them twice a day any more. I'll certainly look into that organisation though
Well I was going to say I had a busy day today, but after reading through the thread all I can say is ...
I've had a fine day today thank you.
Hope you all get well/home soon.

"I don't have to look like the Billy no mates in the corner with no one to visit them twice a day"
^^^tis another reason why I prefer to discharge myself rather than wait the "full term"


Yes I have a father 84yrs old but stubborn as hell who like me doesn't like hospitals.
Yes I could call the elderly neighbour but then I'd be concerned about other things
And my nephew is like the other people you mention in your reply

I'm hearing you loud n clear... just wish one of your friends/neighbours would read this and act accordingly like I would.
But please give the Carers Federation a call when you get chance... even if you get good news... just to find out what support they can offer or point you in the direction best for your circumstances.
