Hurt foot in hospital, need guidance. First ignored I was in pain,then several days later had xray...no broken bones. Ignored again.
Requested walking frame after borrowing one from patient (still have it) not suitable for outside use. Housebound now, was very very active before fall in hospital. Insisted via gp on having repeat xray of foot. Apparently gp was told I had sciatica no mention of fall...now told via xray arthritic. Gp said I can have physio but must pay my own transport. Doesnt seem like arthritic condition to me. How can a condition be ignored then change from one to another without seeing me. Hospital care poor. I am elderly but was very active and did voluntary help which obviously unable to do now. Would a second opinion be advisable or do drs think when you are in 70s its easy to say arthritus.
