"After care"

About: Hospital Of St Cross (Rugby)

As you will see i left a review in April 2014 and must add it was july/august before i managed to arrange physio albeit through my GP as the Hospital hadn't done this and said they couldn't help when i rang up i was given the impression physio should be arranged during the six weeks post op period.Since i was discharged i began suffering from what i can only describe as "shaking legs" ihave spent hours walking around the house during the night as well as taking baths to try and releive this,my GP visited and gave me three lots of medication which did not help.when i finally saw the consultant they said they would refer me to a neurologist if the problem persisted.I had follow up x-ray in February and was told a clinician would decide whether i needed app. or not.Iput anote on my questionaire saying i needed to see consultant as this condition was affecting my life to the point where i can hardly go out and now taking 3 baths through the day as well as at night i can put up with this no longer but as yet have heard nothing from hospital. i cant even sit down for 10 mins.either at home or elsewhere and spend most of my time lying on the floor which is not good.I know i have had RSL syndrome for years but this is different and i can take it no more i am in tears as i write this as i just feel i cant take this any longer.What am i to do to get an appt.consult PALS again i suppose but it should not come to this.
