"Delay in diagnosis of my knee"

A month ago I went to see my GP. He sent me for an x-ray. I went in mid-October. To date, no results have been returned. Today I paid £3 to park for a quarter of an hour to be told there's a backlog and results should be out in a few days.
I have difficulty standing and walking - even across the room. I have no diagnosis of what ails me (including elbow, wrist and shoulder pain) and, as a 24/7 carer, life is becoming difficult.
Please explain "backlog" in terms I can understand since the x-ray was available on the internet the moment it was taken. Why is my condition undiagnosed four weeks after seeing the doctor?
