Admitted in june with bulging disc under a really good consultant kept me informed. Then discharged and readmitted after clinic appt with above consultant, then downhill as was admitted under different consultant. I was then transferred from 61 to 27 where the recent consultant rarely saw me, no mention of treatment but was revisiting all old treatment that initial consultant had tried. I'm now discharged (self catheterisation)? ? ? ? ? New symptom but no discussion as to why happened. Am awaiting on referrals to spinal surgeon, pain team and urology which latter is in December! Why did consultants not talk to each other re treatment as felt like a pawn! I'm also involved with nhs as job so I have knowledge of this process and treatment and feel I was subsequently ignored by the consultants. On a lighter note the nurses in 61 and 27 were fantastic.
