Hi, last December 2015 l damaged my back at work. (nurse) . I went home in agony. The next day was horrendous. So much pain. Then the net day l got out of bed and nearly fell over! My leg was numb as was my foot. I thought l had a stroke. Went to gp that afternoon with foot drop who sent me home with pain killers. The next day l went to a physiotherapist and she said l had no response in my toes and to return in a week which l did.She told me to go back to gp and request a mri which l had 3 weeks later. URGENT REFERRAL it said on results ....like 3 months later and miles and miles from my home as my local hospital could not see me. By then it was too late,,said the consultant. Not actually believing him l managed to get an appointment at my own hospital where that consultant said the same thing. AN occupational health doctor told me my gp should have sent me straight to a&e and this could/would have been rectified ie surgery....People are now telling me its medical negligence but l am worried about suing my surgery! What do you think???
