I have suffered for years with back pain I knew when my pain went way above my pain level that things weren't right so got home visit. I should say at this point I am also suffering with bronchial problems which when the Dr came she immediately dealt with this even though she increased my pain medication. I also told her I had had a 3 day episode of not being able to control my bowel at all. Few weeks later I had to go Drs as pain was unbearable
I was there at 18.00 hours hospital half an hour later saw registrar about 5 hours later in agony. After I was admitted with suspected spinal compression they couldn't decide whether to send me to Newcastle RVI but I was sent 18 hours later for MRI which showed I had a very large disc growth so was operated on for CES which by this time was urgent and major surgery. I don't know why it was missed or not considered over the last 5/6 weeks. Is someone at fault or was I just unlucky
