In the beginning of January I broke my leg playing football. When attending the hospital one doctor was very nice and helpful. However, another doctor refused to do what was asked of them. I heard them arguing about whether to manipulate my ankle. When I was in pain and distressed it was very upsetting to witness them arguing. Eventually I had my leg manipulated and was admitted to hospital. Then I was operated on the next day with screws and a plate put in my leg. When I was discharged from hospital, I was not seen by any doctor explaining what would then happen. One of the nurses mentioned that the pins had to be out in nine weeks. This was disgusting as I didn't know what was happening. If I was to improve things , I would make sure better communication took place between doctors and patients as my experience of this was let down.
