"Spiral elbow fracture"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

So nine months in surprise surprise still no physiotherapy, went back in Christmas week 2014 in agony, X-rays revealed my plate was moving, long story short went in last Tuesday for a appointment with my consultant they didn't X-ray me as usual and had me down for a foot fracture, good job we questioned this! So we were sent for X-rays and say a new consultant who was fabulous! Unfortunately as we suspected I'm in for surgery tomorrow as the plate as moved to much and is coming out is now an emergency! I'm absolutely disgusted that I've been left in pain for 9months only to have to go through it all again! I was openly told by my consultant who The Consultant was discussing this matter with that it shouldn't have been done how they did it and struggled to do it while I was awake! I'm hoping and praying this surgery goes to plan other wise I rush loosing a limb.... I'm not confident at all your the care and the standards I received last time which leaves me having little hope..
