"one unhappy mother"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

My son who is epileptic has had a mouth infection for the past 8 weeks cant eat and constantly in pain he was told to come to the hospital to have his tooth extracted under general anaesthetic, we arrived at the ward in plenty of time was told to sit in the waiting room, we were left there an hour only for someone to come and tell us his operation had been cancelled due to lack of beds! As you may gather we were not happy not only has he been in pain for last two months but his seizures are happening more and more because of the pain hes in making him stressed. a result of this means hes also addmitted to hospital everytime he has a seizure all i can say is thank god qmc dont treat him this bad
