After a fall at home I went to qe2 in excruciating pain in my arm and back .
Find out at a later date that just my humerous was x rayed . No fractures
Apparently then sent home . Call ambulance get taken to Lister sent home again .Keep saying my collarbone is a different shape and my scapula and mid back is so painful. Made to feel I am the one going mad and basically wasting NHS time. Sent away more than five times. Change hospitals and find out I have a fracture to the collarbone and a thoracic fracture to my spine. I am now left with nerve damage and unable to work .
I didn't attend A&E for a day out or just to be dismissed and sent away. I did so because I was in excruciating pain. If only I had been listened to I could have received immediate and appropriate treatment . Instead of just take paracetamol !
