Hi All, went to Dr's friday, she had been on holiday so not seen her for a month. Last time she sent me for fasting blood tests then said she would put me forward for hip replacement. I saw a different Dr for blood test result,He said he thought I must have missheard her re the ( hip repl ) but test results were ok and needed checking again in 3 months due to thyroid. Now Dr say's she does not remember saying about hip replacement and there is nothing in MRI scan. I asked for fit note and said DLA had been refused so I do not know what happens now, she said she has letter which say's she should not give me any more fit notes ( had letter since may apparently). I said what about my hips they are still very painful and have been since the beginning of all this 2 yrs now since it started at work. She then gave me note to go for X-ray and said I will give you a note for two weeks but will be unable to give you any more as it comes back on me. I went for the x-ray at lunchtime friday. I have been so upset since and don't know what to do or who to turn to. How can this treatment be right when I have been the sole parent to bring up 5 kids and get worn out whilst the other parent has been alowed to neglect his parental duties by the same country that is condeming me as a work shy scrounger. I feel so tired and worn out with all this stress. since the travel to birmingham by taxi and back on monday I have been in intense pain with my back and am crying for the first part of most day's, where will it all end.
