"my mother's treatment"

About: Weymouth Community Hospital

my mother was admitted with severe pain. She had been in pain for months. The GP said it was sciatica. The consultant(who never got up from his chair) said it was sciatica. This hospital gave her scans and I was told by the sister that my mother had 'fair wear and tear' and was ' fairly bouncing around the ward. She came home in terrible pain. A week later admitted to Poole hospital, more scans, she had bone cancer, liver cancer and lung cancer. Very sorry about the previous scans, they must have been mis-read. Shame.
