"Scan results, still in pain"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

Since my last story here I received a CT scan then met with the surgeon for the results. This resulted in an MRI scan being booked which I must say was very quick. However now almost 4 weeks on I have no results and still experience the same pain which has been going on for a number of months. I feel really let down by the NHS and just want answers to what's going on and why I'm in pain.

Thanks for the reply Pauline. I have previously been in touch with Yvonne Ross with my last story on here so she is aware of my identity if you can update me ?
