I am knocking on an ever disappearing Door, only to be met with a wall, and a whitewashed one at that.
Yesterday I went to see another Consultant to get him to look and review my case in the hope that what I'm saying would prevail over and above the usual defensive wall I've met from these Powerful Consultant's; who's defending of the ring fenced shield around themselves, is more important, than the symptoms and fact's from their patient's.
You see I think that the term Chronic Pain, May be used as a way to hide the many error's and mistakes within the NHS , am I correct ? or is it that I am looking for scapegoats ? .
Yesterday I went in to get a second opinion from another hosp from a different Consultant, I was dubious about doing it as I thought they would only dig their heels in deeper, after all what Consultant would dare contradict such a powerful force from the supposed top neurological dept in the UK.
Yes we may expect too much from these put upon Consultant's and doctors, but what oath comes first, is it to their colleagues, or is it to their patient's, " To Do No Harm" , you see the point about hiding things from the patient because it will do them no good to know the full extent of their problems. But what if you as a patient are relying on as much information as possible so that you can find a way to manage your condition, for I know that in my case I believe that I may not have continued my regime of exercises and walking that may have led to it making my condition worse, , and may have led to unnecessary treatment, (Prostrate Cancer) .
Have you ever been patronized by your Consultant, that you don't know, or that they know whats best and that that's it, now go away and live on strong painkillers, or they have caused you unbearable stress, by refusing to accept that you know the fact's, and that you have lied, or forgot about a fall that has caused all your problems, symptoms that you have bombarded them with for years, only for them to change diagnosis, as and when they deemed it best, for their stonewalling wall to stand up.
Have you had your clinic fail to pass on the fact's to another Hospital or Consultant, because hiding their true suspicions would have left them open to ?? well only they know if and what is true, only I know the fact's and symptoms, and what caused them, and I suspect that they know exactly what I say is true, and it has led to making me worse, in the short term and in the long term, and that is unforgivable . It must not happen again to anyone else, and I am going to try my best to see that it does not .
