Posted by KarlMarx (as ),
I have seen 4 consultants regarding my condition, over the last 5 and a half years and tried dozens of medications with no improvement other than good old Ibuprofen which has a short life and has a few nasty side effects, bleeding of bowel and stomach when used too regularly.
After a couple of consultations with my current Urologist and an exploratory operation some inflammation was found and it was decided for me to have an Ultrasound guided injection of Betamethasone and a pain killer. I explained to my Consultant that the only thing that would be of help was the Betamethasone as its an anti inflammatory and worked well with a similar injection for epididymitis and had more or less cured that condition.
After I'd had the procedure I was in a lot of pain for a week or two and couldn't understand why there was no relief at all and I paid for a private consultancy to check why this should be. I then found out that they did not inject the Betamethasone and only the painkiller, which was pretty much useless as I have a strong resistance to painkillers due to taking codeine every day.
Ive had to endure a further six months of unnecessary pain and further poor quality of life due to this but I don't really know what to do about it or who to complain to.
I am in and was treated in the Merseyside area.
I don't want any compensation, I just want the proper procedure to be performed, the one I agreed with my consultant, as quickly as possible as I figure I am owed this at the very least.
