It has taken Tameside Hospital 3 years to diagnose the arthritis of a 20 year old female. She is now on pain medication but has been undergoing tests for 3 years. She was offered surgery but is very reluctant to have operation.
Physio made it worse and more painful. She went for MRI scan but they were unsure which joint to scan. She is disillusioned with medical care at Tameside Hospital.
