"The Orthopaedic visit"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

I recently had a serious accident whilst working and injured my left wrist, right elbow and right ankle. I was sent to three different doctors who each had a limb. All is going well with the right elbow snd the left wrist is still receiving first class care through the NHS but at a private hospital. However the right ankle is still problematic with aching and stinging in the area that was crushed by a falling 350 kilo cage. I recently had to attend the Orthopedic fracture clinic and met a Dr who is a orthopedic registrar.During the consultation I explained how my right foot constantly aches when driving and sometimes I have to drive barefoot to relieve the intense aching.

They then explainers how

I should not walk more than 1 mile a day for the next year as I may aggregate the cyst that resulted from my foot being crushed.

However they weren't exactly honest in their diagnoses and latter prognosis and made a report almost to the opposite of what was explained.

It appears they played the part of the patient and made up a incorrect and miss leading report.

I am actually quite shocked that the registered orthopedic registrar appears to have twisted almost beyond repair what was the truth.

Fortunately their report was swiftly discovered and steps taken.Their report was clearly their individual opinion. If I say Im feeling discomfort and they write in their report that I said I'm happy the pain is improving then clearly something isnt right. Shocking really !
