"right hip replacement"

About: King's Mill Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

After 4 weeks, I started to get a lot of pain from my bottom to my foot and back in my groin been going back and forth to doctors and hospital and was told it was a pinched sciatica nerve.

This has been going on for 5 months also lost my taste so have lost 4 stone. In Feb, I had a fall and was taken back to Kingsmill where I was told I needed a operation but did not get. They said every day waiting for a slot. I had an mri which showed my hip became loose need to removed and cement in was the only way to stop my pain.

I was given a date I said thank god. I could see a light at the end of tunnel, but was let down again. Even 2 weeks prior to having an operation doctors said yes, but the man who put you to sleep said no.

Crazy how many times can they say yes or no. I'm left in pain and cannot see an end to this depression. I cry all day just waiting to take my tablets, without I would be dead, so why you would not believe this in our country? I would not put a dog through it.
