Not feeling satisfied with just being subscribed painkillers for the increasing pain & disability caused by arthritis (right knee) I spoke to my GP. He, through TRAQS, got me an appointment with the orthopaedic clinic, where I learnt, after xrays, that the condition isn't severe enough for an operation. Am now to have an MRI scan.
Do feel satisfied, now, that I am being listened to, and not dismissed because of my age. (Am now in my 82nd year)
Was treated politely throughout.
