I recently went to see my doctor. I suffer with a degenerative disease in my spine, only after
a car accident did the disease wake up and its been down hill all the way for me. A recent
doctors appoinment reassured something I was thinking about. He gave me a tablet to take
in the night time, it shuts down part of my nervous system so I can sleep. The doctor didnt
even examine me he looked at me with sorryful eyes gave me tablets and let me be on my
I thought fare enough there isnt much he can do for me at the moment anyway, but when I
got home I decided that I would research the operation I need for me to save the use of my
legs. The operation is called A spinal fusion, sounds nasty, and looks quite nasty. All the
information I could really get was after the operation what to expect and what tablets you
are offered to help with the pain.
Not one person wrote a article about how good or bad the operation is. What I found out for
myself is that if there is a pill to help, people in general will except it and take it without
question or reason.
Instead of taking a tablet and shutting up, im going to nag until i get some answers, because
27 months ago I was a young fit healthy man. I have served in the army and worked all of
my adult life. I have been admitted to hospital a few years back with some thyroid problem I
recovered from that all good and well. If I had this debilating disease lurking in my spine,
how on earth did did it slip past the radar, when I had my full medical assessment for the
army or random check ups with my GP.
Now I have a future full of agony and pain whilst trying to get use to my disability, everytime
I have been to hospital with problems caused through issues with my health, I have been
given tablets and sent on my way. I wish someone would let let me know how the health
service in general gets away with it.
I must have this operation this year and its through my claim against a not so clever driver,
my operation is being paid for private, but when I had my accident I was admitted to a
normal NHS hospital, and if the staff in that hospital had done thier job which they are trained
and paid to do, I would be alot better than I am at the present moment, neglect
mistreatment and overwhelming sense of idiocracy, left me disabled and feeling let down by
the same people who I fought to protect in the army. Where is the justice in that? take care
all and dont except excuses from anyone. Get the answers you deserve.
