Arm pain 10 years later after injury

Posted , 3 users are following.

hi can someone please point me in the right direction ,

there is an old injury to the upper part of my forearm it was lacerated with glass and went through to the bone and cut the belly of the muscle, cut Tendants and cut the ulna nerve , & two of my little fingers were hanging off !! i was taken to hospital where they clamped my arteries and told me there was no one here to sort it out !! i laid on a ward for 4 days only for the nurse on duty told me i need to have the pad the ambulance had put on is starting to smell and blood was on the floor in a pool , i was taken back to a&e were they had to rip the pad off that had fused to my massive cut everything was decaying !! oucch

i made a video at the time and now cant find which i showed later to the nurse on duty she was horrified and cried shes sorry and that she will call me an ambulance for deriford hospital straight away,

she said i thought it only minor cut that wouldnt stitch up i asked for morphine for the pain which she refused and gave me parcetimal i was rushed to deriford hospital were i was booked in and delt with by this time it was five days and i had nine hours and 900 hundred stitches later ,

i was told the tendents have died back quite a bit and had to be stretched and the ulna nerve had died off.

i've gone through all that pain and ten years later im having serious pains in the area ive been to the doctors who sent me to a specilaist at the hospital who has said its neropathy and with my clawed little fingers he could see ? i asked if i could have a mri scan or an xray make sure we cant see any problems ,

he didnt seem to want to know !

he sent me a report and said i came off a bus ?:

i went back to my doctor who then sent me to physio therapy and the women bless her looked at me as if to say she couldnt help , she gave me some exercise with a rubber band to so but to be honest i do more at work and the whole thing was pointless i need help with this pain i go through every day i dont want pills to hide it i want to see the problem and fix it or am i asking to much
