Sorry, just joined - currently in hospital for the first time, been here for a few days
I have had UC for 11 years, a d this is my first time inside.
From 8am to 2pm today I was only offered paracetamol and buscapan yet I was curled up on the hospital bed, complaining about the pain, and asking for more relief. I also was buzzing every 20mins, yet was simply told "the doctor has been informed". I didn't really realise what had happened until tonight and now I am very confused.
When asked to rate my pain I said it was around a "7" ... On my night of admission I was giving a rating of 8 and they gave me morphine.
Anyone had a similar experience? I wrote down a retrospective time breakdown of the day. I think I asked for additional pain relief around 15-20 times through buzzing the nurses. Happy to share the timeline if someone has advice.
Sorry if this is not an appropriate post. I was not sure where else to turn, or sure if I have made my point clearly above
