I just got a phone call from hospital this morning to say that while looking through some old notes she noticed that the urine sample that was sent away on June 11th had come back showing I needed treatment! They had already told me it was fine. She said she'd phone my gp and arrange an antibiotic straight away as I should have been treated by now. Midwife just left too and bp is away over 100 again. Not really surprised. I had this pain etc for two weeks before the hospital sent the sample so have had a kidney infection for 6 or 7 weeks, no wonder I feel miserable. Can't help but worry that that's been affecting my bp, swelling etc. I am so so angry.

Oh Chelle, I'm so sorry you've been having such a hard time and are understandably feeling so un-cared for.

I would be ranting and raving by now (or writing formal complaints) in your position. This really is not good enough.

I really hope you still have a happier ending x

Hi Chelle,

I can only really echo Jules' comment. You are getting so many mixed messages.
Thank goodness you are so well armed with information to keep checking & challenging what is being said.

Ive just replied to your other post so hopefully we will talk tomorrow.

Best wishes

Every Woman is entitled to understand what happened in her pregnancy when pre eclampsia strikes. I hope to be able to support that process.
