"emergency and after care"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

brought in as emergency for the third time in a couple of weeks, still have underlying problem of back in that the discs are all inflamed, lost use of legs, checked up and still on a waiting list, explanation was that my doctor doesnt treat emergency. thats fine but now been in hospital for over five days, still no sign of the treatment and legs still not working Probably going to be released in same condition without treatment, go back on the list and wait further time. due to whats happening, i could collapse again as pain management not working and no further treatment given only physio to stop atrophy of the legs. better that the underlying problem was addressed whilst there
