How to get medical notes from an operation on my feet !!!

I may be paranoid but I really want to find out if there was an error in my surgery I had on my toes both feet! Ever since then my circulation to my legs and feet are getting worse... to the point where I would have a shower and my legs go purple and my feet.. so then I have to put my feet up for a while.. everything is become so hard to do!! Before I had surgery I was always health fit and on the go always do one thing or another ... two jobs two young kids and so on ... yet since my operation I can barely do anything... but nobody is listening to me they just say on yeah ok here's more happy pills.. and countless number on different drugs they keep trying ... yet nothing has lessened it...

  • Your GP should have received details of your operation and therefore should be able to supply you with the info you need. Advice re PALS etc. is good. Also try making an appointment with the surgeon who carried out the operation and discuss your problems with him - ask ask for a copy of your notes. You should have had a follow up appointment after surgery.
