I had major surgery to both my feet and was informed this is a straight forward, common operation which will require 12 weeks recovery time.
It was obvious pretty quickly that there was a problem and recovery wasn't going to plan. Although the consultant did not agree and each time I asked a question the consultant was very rude and abrupt and told me I was too impatient and the surgery went well.
The consultant made me feel as though I was an irritation and a hypochondriac. Now 7 months on, I need further surgery.
I thought doctors had a duty of care to patients and should make their patients feel at ease. I am afraid the way I was treated by this individual is not acceptable, and I told them so.
