I was not well yesterday but as I read the group chat at work the nurse working with me was sick so I didn't have the conscience to call in sick too as I am the only nurse left to work. But before the handover started I felt the under of my rib getting squeezed it was too painful I was crying in pain. My colleague had to wheel me to the emergency department in my uniform. I was so embarrassed and also so worried of the emergency charges. The doctor said it's gall bladder colic but I'm glad I don't have to stay in hospital. They sent me home after an IV parecoxib and paracetamol. They're going to book me for a scan to have it checked and make sure there's no stones. Pain back to being dull instead of squeezing.
