"Treatment ok but pain relief did not last"

About: Montagu Hospital / Pain Management Rotherham Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Excellent care at Rotherham general hospital after my fall down stairs in January 2013. Broke my femur, spiral fracture, broken right ankle, shredded tendon in right thumb.

Suffered back pain since 1992, had lots of different treatments, was treated at Rotherham general hospital. Referred to Montague hospital pain management from Rotherham walk in centre in 2013.

The treatment was ok, but the pain relief did not last. I tried by phone for fresh treatment, was put on answer machine which is rubbish, it does not matter new, I'm learning to cope. They did not even reply.
