OH recently in hospital for 101 days. 2 days before admission they were mowing the lawns and a few days prior to that took part in our annual branch sponsored walk. No prior symptoms at all except a visit to our GP 10 days before due to swollen hands and feet which was ignored.
They lost a stone and a half whilst an inpatient; came home weighing just under 9 stone. Managed with proper food at home to gain 7 lbs in 7 weeks.Thinking of making an official complaint regarding their lack of care. Many other things were amiss, not least putting a catheter in when it was not medically necessary, just a convenience. Ignoring a cough 3 times which was a chest infection, not addressing other ongoing symptoms for months which has resulted in an urgent referral to a colorectal consultant.
Any advice appreciated as to what to do next or where to go with this?
