Posted by in pain and miserable (as ),
Without going into too many details… I had my original surgery at the Western Infirmary, for a broken tibia and fibula. It healed, but the pain has got increasingly worse, and they told me arthritis had set in immediately? (which does not normally happen).
I had surgery to remove the metalwork, and then given an MRI to confirm this, they were quite happy to write me off at this point.
Since then I had a second opinion which said they would remove some bits of bone. The surgery has now been postponed, (due to the surgeon going on annual leave and on call), they took me off the list and onto a new list for another 12 weeks!
In between all this an appointment was cancelled at the Western Infirmary and a letter sent for me to go over to the Victoria Infirmary and when I got there they said we don't know why your here? Its a mistake? They got someone to call me that afternoon and she apologised and gave me an appointment this week for The Southern General and when I attended that I was told… We don't know why your here? We are sorry, but just wait for your surgery at the Royal Infirmary? I said but now thats postponed? I do believe that he was going to complain to someone about this. I am so angry as I have seen numerous consultants and been fobbed off by different consultants and in the meantime I am in pain and nobody knows why?
I need some answers as this is a disgrace
