My daughter saw the Rheumatologist privately through my ex hubby BUPA she wasn't over keen on him but he sent her for an MRI as she was in so much pain he said to her you only had one done january last hear nothing will have changed,However when she returned his reaction was different he told her she has a labral tear ( not sure i spelt that right ) its like a tendon or something rounder hip which she is in so much pain with he also said about joint disease said she was low in Vitamin D and something else which she couldn't remember what it was. He referred her to orthopaedic surgeon she saw hi last night and he turn round and said no not much change on the scan go and exercise she said she sat they and just wanted to cry because her pain has got so much worse i the last 6 months she has had fybro for about 5 years.She said this guy was very abrupt and rude which a sits private they are normally a lot friendlier when she left she cried. If the rheumatologist told her there was big change in the last year why down the ortho guy see it. she had looked it up on the internet and it stated if it is not sorted she will get osteoarthritis. she said to me last night that she didn't want to end up like me she did say she didn't mean it in a bad way. what is it with these drs. i mean my knees are bone on bone my hips are not much better and they just say it may make it worse if they'd anything surgically. well surely that should be my call to be honest i would sooner take the risk as this pain is driving me mad my hips and knees hurt so much and my left hand which i did have surgery on 5 Weeks ago but its in a moulded plastic splint i fell over during the week and am wondering if i broke my hand but even if i had all they would do initially would be put a brace on as its so swollen. i thought i was seeing psychiatrist today but i got my days mixed up and its tomorrow. recently moved into a council flat but there are some people i the area that i am literally scared of so emailed the council and a man who deals with this area came round and told me they are aware of whats going on and they are leasing with the police i am looking to move if i can get someone to swap or i can go on the list again and if i supply a letter from the psychiatrist and GP then i could be banded higher on the council otherwise they would say i have adequate accommodation.
