(told by aunt)
21 year old girl injured her arm. Went to Tameside General Hospital for x-ray. First told it was fractured and a temporary plaster applied.
A week later told it wasn't fractured, and a full plaster was said to be unnecessary. Still in pain, not sure what to believe.
Afraid it may be fractured and may be making it worse by using it. Feels staff at TGH don't know what they are doing. Won't go there again.
