Went to the hospital other day as been still having pain in leg where I had fractured beginning of May. My last appointment in August I was told by my consultant it had all healed and to resume normal activities and was not due back until November and he would refer me to physio.
As I had not heard nothing 6 week later had to demand a follow appointment as after 6 week from august apointment pain was unbearable, got appointment for thursday and had another x ray and you could clearly see that the orignal frature is still there and not healed and new registar said should have had a plate put in at start when fracture was done. Now I am back to not being allowed to drive, even though been driving unknown that my leg was still fractured, putting the pain done to my fibro. The registar got my xray from August appointment and you could clearly see the fracture not healing, now need an operation. I have been totally neglected by my consultat and have spoke with a lawyer as this is totally medical neglience. Now I need to go in next wednesday for an operation by new consultant, I have just got over the chicken pox and this has had me in tears as now looks like I am going be off wok for minimum another 4 mth.
I am totally disgusted by the way this has been allowed to happen , how can aconsultant say your fracture has healed when clearly there has been no improvement when it is there in my xray clear as day.
