"Being denied a second opinion"

About: Dr Gray's Hospital / Women's Services

(as the patient),

I live in Grampian Health Board area. I am only able to walk, with help of sticks, because of pain in my legs. This has been investigated and I was told by Doctor that they didn't know the cause of pain, or my not being able to walk.

When I suggested it might be because of an implant I was told I was just scaremongering and compared me to the people who said there were side effects from MRM vaccine and all the trouble that caused the Medical Profession.

Since January I have 4 times requested a second opinion, the last time was in August. After all this time, it is not going to happen, but I am surely entitled to be told the reason I am being turned down.
