I was brought into hospital after i felt and heard a popping noist in my VP shunt after i sneezed and they decided to operate to put a pressure monitor in to check my pressure. The levels on paper were ok but they never noted the levels when i was doing normal stuff and my eye sight has continued to get worse and my pain is worse than evert. I had come back from an eye test and my neuro surgeon can in looking happy and said ieverythings fine and i can go home. Normally good news but my balance has gone and my eye site is worse than ever. Not to mention my poor speach, confusnion and muscleweakness. Im clearly not well. He stands there and says well you cant stay here we nesd the bed.like i want to be there! I said my balance has gone, i cant walk! He said i need to maks an effort. It doesn't matter if you fall but you need to try! The nurses wouldnt let me walk alone as i was so unstable! So under his instruction i tried which led to a fall on the ward (28th Feb,2014) he then walked past me smiling. I had such faith in this surgeon. But ive now lost faith in the surgeon, st georges hospital and thd NHS in general! These are peoples lives their dealing with.
