I went to the hospital for anal bleeding and anal mucous. Help!!!Doctors and Health Professionals..Is it legal

I went to the hospital for anal bleeding and anal mucous. But when I was discharged, the reason I went was not listed on the discharge papers. It was one of the lesser symptoms that was on their. The docter did xrays and blood test. Also; a fecal occult test by a student docter came out sllightly positive, However; on the print out that I requested of all test and results. Nothing was listed about the test. Also, the discharge papers said nothing about the anal bleeding or mucous that I came in for. It documented that I was trated for abdominal pain. Which was the least of my problem.he said the Xray showed that I had stool backed up in my colon, in and out. Okay, fine, but why was my primary complaint not listed on any of papers. When asked to speak to the Head person of the department, a male RNsaid that he was head. And virutally agreed with the docter. What of anything can I do about this situation? Can anyone help me? angelsstr@yahoo.

    Abdominal pain is not a diagnosis, its a symptom. From the information given, it seems you haven't been offered any closure about a potentially serious presenting complaint.
    If it was diagnosed as a backed up stool it should have clearly indicated as such, with all other differential diagnosis' ruled out (eg: colon cancer?)
    I would definately be contacting the higher powers of the ward for an explanation
