I have just had a surgical abortion a few weeks ago.By anonymous on 22/12/2014
Hello, I have been reading all your stories and it helps me to realize that I am not alone with this. Thank you I have just had a surgical abortion a few weeks ago. I am still not sure whether I have done right or wrong however my bigger issue is that I am not feeling well at all. I have been trying to arrange for an abortion since I was 10 weeks but there was a big miscommunication with a couple of places I decided to go for an advice so finally I got the referral and the surgery when I was 14 weeks+. The hospital was busy and some nurses were great some not. I have not even seen the doctor and nobody explained to me anything when they sent me home. On my medical record which I was given on leave it said I had lost over one litre of blood. Anyway it has been 6 days now and I am feeling very bad. I am bleeding a lot with lots of pain, having nausea and feeling dizzy. This morning I have been trying to call my GP for an emergency appointment but the lines were out of order. I called the hospital and they advised me to come over but unfortunately I could not travel so far. I called 111 and she advised me to take some Paracetamol. Now I am sitting in my bed typing out my story wondering what to do as I feel like there is no chance of getting checked out to see if my surgical termination was fine. I am scared! I can not afford to stay in hospital another time as I have to look after my little daughter and I am all alone in UK with all my family living abroad. I pray to God for the pain and bleeding to stop to get back to my normal life.
