I have been suffering for about 7 months with increasing pain in my leg after suffering a spiral fracture which needed surgery and metal work put in place.
After numerous gp visits and increasing pain medication I was finally referred back to the original consultant at north tyneside I waited over a month for an appointment. When I finally saw them they thought I may have stress fractures down my shin bone causing the pain but needed further investigation. They were not sure which scan either CT, MRI or bone would give the best picture of what was causing the pain so they said they would ask an expert and get back to me and told me I would have an appointment within 2 weeks. I explained I was in alot of pain and am returning to work after maternity leave where I will need to be on my feet for 8hours a day.
I was assured I would be seen within 2 weeks. It is now 3 weeks later I have spoken to the hospital twice and have been informed that my appointment is still in a box in the office untouched. I found out that they have not done anything with it, it has not been dictated or progressed.
I understand doctors are under pressure and are very busy but I am in increasing amount of pain taking more and more pain killers it is affecting my daily life and nothing is being done.
