Achilles Rupture healed.
A hip problem developed afterwards from using a "Knee Scooter" to get about on.
Long waiting time to see a specialist.
Specialist referring me for treatment to parts of the hip with out looking at the whole of the hip area via MRA scan.
I found that the specialist treating me was impassionate, impatient & rude.
6 months have passed & I'm still not able to walk
Nerve pain in the hip area keeps me awake all through the night
111 hospital service ie Ambulance & Doctor have called. Christmas Day they came out to me. Both Ambulance Man & Doctor told me That in order to be treated in reasonable time I would have to be admitted to the hospital.
I do not want to go in & leave my pet, when I feel that the correct scans would identify the problem. A hospital stay will cost the state more & is inconvenient for me & my pet.
I have to wait another month in horrid pain & unable to do more than make my way to the toilet & kitchen for a drink & back to collapse in bed.
I can not take much more & need a proper whole hip scan & a good specialist that listens, see's and cares.
I think it's disgusting to have been treated with impatience & rudeness even though they can clearly see that it has been a massive effort to get their in a manual wheel chair.
