Serious Surgical Blunder Compounded By Dismissive Attitude of Health Professionals Afterwards

The Telegraph reports that Lynn Main, 55, had a hysterectomy at Horton General Hospital in Banbury, Oxfordshire, in May. Two days later she was in very great pain but doctors and nurses did not take her seriously until her bowel burst, causing the life-threatening infection called peritonitis.

It was found that during the hysterectomy her bowel had been stitched closed.

The internal damage has now been repaired and a stoma fitted.

Miss Main and her partner have begun legal proceedings about the matter.

It is deplorable how often health professionals fail to take seriously a patient's reports of excruciating pain.
