"they did scans & xrays, nothing."

About: Royal South Hants Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

last year in august i wasnt walking properly. i went to the walk in centre, they couldnt find nothing wrong.

the following week i went to the doctors being sick and a lot of pain in my legs. they referred me to amberly care because my legs were swollen up and ive been on crutches since then.

they did scans and xrays and nothing. i had a few more tests in aeu in southampton general. following on from that, ive been to moor green hospital for physio and to see the consultant which was nearer to me.

i was admitted in hospital in febuary this year where i wasnt well with stomach pains. now ive got a build up of fluid on my ankles so ive been referred to woking from southampton to see a spine specialist so its a long way to go but at least im being seen quicker than in southampton which the hospital app isnt in november at the rhs just down the road.

i do find walking hard. ive got to pay for the fare my self and its costing me 6000 pounds including the taxi fare as i dont know where woking nuffeild hospital is. i have a learning disability as well but it dont put me off.
