Good news for my husband not me!! After he had an accident at work 5 years ago now he has been in an awful state. He cannot straighten his back, so is bend over all the time. He cannot put his right foot flat on the floor and cannot walk. He suffers with terrible pain everyday. We fought with the GP and the local hospital to get him seen at Stanmore Hospital .... It took 2 years to get him just to be seen there! We have waited a long long time for something to be done, after MRI things and nerve testing a... As of next Monday (24th) my husband will be staying in Stanmore hospital for a week for tests...they call it an assessment. There will be lots of Drs and specialists popping to see him and seeing what they can do to help him. The report will take a while to put together, once done they will know hopefully how to treat him. That's when he will go for 6-8 weeks rehab to see if they can improve his quality of life. I am so happy for him, naturally he is anxious but he is going to take his laptop with him so we can chat. It will be strange not having him about for a week.... It's a shame it's taken 5 years to get to this point. I just hope they can help restore his confidence and life.
