I was referred by my GP some 8 to 10 weeks ago with a painful shoulder. This was after a Cortisone injection failed to relieve the pain. Now nearly 8 to 10 weeks on and having been told at first I had a frozen shoulder then that the cup in the joint had shrunk, this started off from Manipulation under anaesthetic and now to Key hole surgery.
All this time I have been under dreadful pain and been brought to tears by it.
The nonsense still goes on, my last appointment with a specialist I challenged them to why they were keeping me in pain so long. The answer shocked me when I was told it was the system and I now need to to have a pre op meeting.
That was a week ago and no news from the Hospital. If I was an animal I would be treated the same day.
My Dr has upgraded my painkillers to just below Morphine and still they dont work and I am in constant pain. It seems all because of the system.
The thing is that they know I have problems with pain control due to a previous operation.
It seems that pain control for me is a hit and miss situation and this time it's a miss. They know this and they are sticking to the system and not budging.
