On 12th December 2014 I underwent surgery to totally fuse my left ankle.Unfortunately the indications are that the ankle is not fusing properly.I am in quite severe pain when
I try to walk.In view of this I find it disgusting that I have had no contact with the consultant surgeon who carried out the operation, since the day they actually did the op. Each time I come to the clinic I am seen ''by one of the consultant's team".
It would be much easier to speak to the consultant face to face and to discuss a course of action.
I am not blaming the staff for this situation as I am always treated with respect.
I can only assume it is some sort of hospital policy.
I find the situation totally unacceptable.
