(as the patient),

I first went to scunthorpe with a back problem four years ago, I have been past from pilar to post I had an operation in hull I have seen a specialist in sheffield and now im back to square one where I started four yearrs ago at scunthorpe.

Went to pain clinic at the end of may and after waiting two month for that appointment I am now waiting another two month for treatment. It looks like the treatment will be the same as when I started four years ago, which didnt work then. So I dont think it will now and I dont need five years in Uni to tell me that.

Why can't they just say, sorry mate you will have this problem for the rest of your life because we ain't got a clue.
