"Broken wrist"

About: Ipswich Hospital

Anything else?

I broke my wrist 18 months ago, I was treated ver well initially, but quickly went down hill. My wrist needs an operation which was explained to me, and that it would be spring time before my wrist could be operated on. Well spring has come and gone. I was referred by orthopaedics to the physics, who were excellent, but found out they couldn't refer me back to the surgeon, I would have to start the process all over again. So I have now had two wrong appointments and heard nothing from the original surgeon. Physics gave me his secretary's phone number but she does not return my calls. Not being able to use my left arm properly is affecting my whole life, work and home. I will keep trying to get the correct treatment but don't have much faith left in ipswich hospital.
