I was gone for 16 days on vacation... Got to spend a few days with my daughter till everything went quiet in my intestines... I was in the hospital for 4 days with a NG Tube and Cathater in my bladder, and neither of them were working. Got out for 2 day and ended back up in the hospital for another 4 days with a NG Tube again. They said my intestines had Ilius, or gas loops and nothing would work. So out of the 8 days I had NG tubes for 6 of them. I had so much blood coming out of me, all I could taste was blood all I could smell was blood, they left the tube in too long which made everything irritated and raw, so now I have burning from my stomach into my intestines.
I hope that it settles down and I dont know what caused everything to go so wrong when I was doing so well. Has anyone had this happen. Plus when I was in the hospital I was neglected so bad, could not get anyone to answer my buzzer. My Jug that held the stuff from the NG tube was full of blood I was gagging and trying to vomit, but as you know if you have ever had a NG tube you cant throw up, so after a hr of going through hell and this happened more than once finally a nurse came in and said its shift change and you just have to wait....What the heck...I started yelling and screaming for someone to help me , I threw everything on my tray table at the door trying to get someone , had my room mate buzzing for nurses also... When the nurse finally came in it was the new one on shift and she said did the other nurse come take care of you? I said no! So she went and grabbed that nurse and brought her into my room and gave her the what for... and reported her. The new nurse was crying and apologizing for the lack of care that some of those nurses dont give. She was so sweet to me and said that she would take good care of me and she did. When my daughter got there she threw a fit and called the charge nurse and told her what had happened...and that heads were going to roll, and that we are calling a attorney and persuring a claim against the nurse and hospital.
I will never go to Ca again, the hospitals are just horrible... so still sick today and tomorrow is my Birthday....so I hope I feel good enough to visit with my son and his family...so say a prayer for me, cuz I need it and it would be greatly appreciated.
Love to all of you
