"Back Spasms"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

Anything else?

Well that's what 2 doctors said after getting myself to A&E the first time in agony and in an ambulance the second time. (ambulance crew were fantastic). Twice I was sent away with back spasms diagnosed after a 2 min diagnosis. Thankfully I had private health insurance who sent me to Highfield where it was discovered I had 2 herniated discs. I've since had steroid injections and multiple visits to the physio but it looks like I will have to have surgery.

Thanks Docs (for nothing that is). I do wonder where these so called doctors qualified?

I didn't realise you could write reviews so this is a bit old but I'm still annoyed by the experience pain and suffering!

On a plus note I have had a good experiences there too this just wasn't one of them.
