I came to the E&a on the 18th of april with severe sciatic pain in my leg and unable to walk either talk from the pain, after waiting for some what 3 hours I finally got to see the Gp who send me to the specialist. The specialist was kind enough to write an MRi for me but in the meantime the only treatment I was given was conservative treatment who obviously do not work on a person who has sciatica for the past 6 months. I had the MRI on the 1st of May, called to find out what happened with the results a week later, the radiologist had the report ready on the 3rd of may. However my affiliated doctor has not send me a letter or set an appointment to discuss treatment. I called to talk to him or someone regarding this issue more than 10 times until today. Without any result. I cant stand , I cant sleep, I cant walk. I have called the ambulance twice until now in order to receive infusion for pain relief. Does it really cost that much for a doctor to simply refer someone to the pain clinic for a nerve root injection? do you really take pleasure in leaving people suffer in pain ? I know you have long waiting list but shouldnt there be some kind of immediate pain relief for someone in my situation ? I am 22 years old , and I cant even go to the toilet without help .....yet after 10 times that I have called and expressed my disatisfaction I am still in pain crying and suffering.
