"Very unhappy, have been treated badly"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

I have a serious illness and was hoping that the consultant would explain why I am getting certain symptoms and how to treat them. I felt that my concerns were not listened to and I was contradicted. I know how I am feeling, the consultant doesn't. He should have listened and told me whether my symptoms are related to my illness. As it stands I have no idea why I am in constant pain or what any of the symptoms mean. Now I have to go and ask for another consultant who will take me seriously.
