I have been suffering with pain in my left hip for two years now.
I went to see my doctor whom referred me to Calow Royal Hospital Chesterfield, where I had a scan/xray. My doctor told me that they didn't deal with what was wrong with me so then referred me to Doncaster Royal Infirmary where I saw a specialist who deals with what I'm having at the moment, I had an arthrogram, I had scans etc...
This didn't help having a steroid injection and was told that they could no longer help me! I cried and a nurse said do not give up, ring your doctor and ask to get a referral. I did this and was again seen by the specialist, he told me he would do the op.
I then got a letter from my doctor telling me the funding was denied. I need this op as I'm in pain, my marriage is suffering, can anyone help me?
