    Default trying a different hospital for the night, your thoughts?

    Hello.
    i am expectingnumber4s partner. As some of you may know she has been dealibg with gallstones for roughly 2 months now if not longer. We have been down to the hospital er around 6 times now only to be sent home with a panadine forte script.
    Tonight she is in a lot of pain with no luck from the forte.
    We have another hospital nearby. debating if we should try there or keep on goubg back to the same hospital with no luck.
    I have called this other hospital and they did say we can go in but cannot garrantee anything.

    Honestly, if she is in enough pain that you would normally be taking her to the first hospital then yes I would take her to the alternative hospital.

    Bad English but hope I've made sense

    Normally i would say keep going to the one place as it bumps you up the list for the op but if you feel like they won't care try the other hospital.

    Definitely try the alternative hospital, my partner was having issues with his appendix, first hospital didn't want to take it out, kept giving him stupid reasons (he's very complacent when it comes to listening to doctors) he kept going back there, I finally insisted that I was taking him to a different hospital, no debate, he was in emergency surgery within hours, with a massive infected appendix wrapped in infected bowel, he lost half his bowel and almost died.

    Sometimes doctors really don't know best, and will just be stubborn and won't look for alternatives, ive been following her story, I hope she is okay.
