"So bad"

About: Manor Hospital

Having had problems with my leg for almost 4yrs, I've now been told there is a 18 week waiting list for a camera investigation and hopefully treatment. A&E isent me home on painkillers and unable to walk for 3 days . Couldn't go to bed and was unable to go to the toilet unaided as in such excruciating pain.

On another sent me home as MRI results hadn't come back. On this occasion I couldn't walk for 7hours. I felt staff would not listen to me. One consultant even sent me for a second opinion as I think it was late in the day and clinic was nearly over. On the second opinion the consultant listened to me and clearly knew something was wrong and spent a considerable time with me. They have arranged for a camera investigation. No wonder Manor is all over the news. I've felt like a disabled person unable to bend down for the last 4yrs
