Posted by on the sick not on the mend (as ),
the bone in my leg is not mending I want to go back to work and need a exogen machine I have read about but my hospital in Nottingham doesn't have them. I asked the nurse about it she said 'we don't use them here'. Other hospitals do! nice have looked at this and say it works and it saves money. I have seen videos on the internet from other hospitals in country where they use this. I need to go back to work I haven't worked since my accident over 2 years ago. I also care for my dad which is impossible now as I cant walk. This is effecting my whole family not just me. it is ridiculous a post code lottery. I can have another operation though the last 2 haven't worked. I don't want more operations. I am a positive person but I feel down and depressed about my situation. I wish I could afford to pay private I am not asking for cosmetic surgery I need my leg back. It may as well be taken off and I will have a false leg and stay on benefits.
