About: Christchurch Hospital Christchurch Hospital Christchurch BH23 2JX
I went to see two rheumatologists concerning a neck trauma. They were extremely unhelpful and my symptoms have not improved at all. One was also judgemental implying that the reason that I had pain was because I wasn't working hard enough at my physiotherapy. I had also been told that my pain was a 'learnt response'. I discovered this year that they were unable to analyse my MRI correctly in that I have many bone spurs and also a cyst within the damaged disc itself. My current surgeon has stated that this cyst was evident in an x-ray in 2011! The bone spurs are putting pressure on nerves and I have generalised weakness now down one side of my body. I am now having to investigate having private spinal surgery abroad as is simply do not trust these doctors. Would never return to this hospital under any circumstances.
