"Was my doctor referral not read?"

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had back operation and got infection then was told wouldn’t have any nerve pain. However, I started to get numbness in back passage, and private genital area. I got seen by a different doctor at Glasgow royal, then that weekend I ended up in a&e and got admitted to a ward. I discharged myself few days later and was given an MRI scan, but still don’t have the results. I have no faith in NHS now and I feel that I would be better off with private health care.
