"Zero standard care"
Posted by Gene (as ),
In 2012 I was injected with sculptra at the royal free hospital, London. The reason I had sculptra injections was because I had a fat graft to the face for lypodistrophy ( fat loss ) and further fat grafting was stopped and I was referred for sculptra.
The reason I was referred for sculptra was, I believe, due to maladministration. The story is complicated. The person who injected me with sculptra was a traniee registrar plastic surgery. They had very little if any experience with this product which resulted in servere granulomas and nodules - forming immediately, causing me signicant disfigurement and pain, which still hasnt improved in 3 years.
I have received no explanation, no redress or offer to put it right and worse than all that has happened: I have been completely ignored, there was no investigation or action of any kind. I feel this is in contradiction to the nhs constitution - which obviously means nothing and my life has been ruined as a result.
Also, in 3 years, whilst under the care of Chelsea &Westminster hospital, London, I have developed terrible neuralgia inflammation of the cranial arteries, with severe and distressing headaches. I have had 3 tests, in 3 years - zero support for pain; zero diagnosis, despite there being many tests to discover what is causing the inflammation, as well as massive arteritis type veins on my head with terrible tenderness in the right cranial regions; absolutely nothing has been done to help me.
I'm suffering with acute attacks - around 3 a month and I'm left like an animal to suffer. It is easier to delay as much as possible, any tests because of costs, In my case I've been provided with nothing. My life is hell!
