I had an injury 15th dec 2011 on my wrist & have since been refered from one doctor to another, I have seen several doctors, surgeons' consultants & had several x-ray's & mri's & I have had 2 x cortisone injections & I was told i needed surgery several times but when I finally get to see a surgeon he then recommended injections again despite being told by another Dr that it will be more damaging having any more injections & the only option was surgery - I am annoyed that a consultant told me i needed surgery Jan 2012 & then when I was finally refered to a senior consultant i was told i only needed injections & now a year & a half later I have been told that i definitly needed surgery & then yet again when I have been refered to a surgeon again, I got told i need ultrasound therapy! it doesn't make sense! the only thing that is consistent is that I have de quervains tenosynvitus & I have been in agony for far too long! not to mention that my appointment some how got cancelled & now I have been told that the ultrasound therapy was never even ordered so now I am waiting to be seen by yet another consultant! it is not acceptable i have been in agony for the last year & a half & i still feel like i am getting fobbed off & sent from pillar to post! I originally went to lincoln hospital Dec2011-Jan2012, and then again Jan 2013 & March 2013.
