"Awaiting surgery since 2009"

About: Inverclyde Royal Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had bad car accident and need surgery to replace my ligaments in my right leg and transplant.

Because I've waited for so long it has now affected my other leg and now I am in so much pain and its ruling my life.

As I speak I'm in bed in pain, the bottom backs of my legs keep twitching because its now affected my nerves and gives loads of discomfort.

I'm very unhappy with Inverclyde Royal Hospital
