Saw consultant one week ago. Today received copy of his letter that he sent to my GP. It states.

1. Having reviewed my ex Ray taken today he was happy with bone healing. I DID'NT have a ex Ray taken.

2. Unhealed scar, close eye to be kept by district nurse. HAVENT seen district nurse. Changes in dressing done at doctors surgery.

3. % bend in foot, where he came up with this figure didn't even touch or ask me to flex ankle.

4. Going to be long recovery. Yipee got this right.

    You should send a copy of the letter with your corrections to your GP and maybe they should send you to a differennt consultant. 

    I find much of healthcare has become documentation of CYA.  I asked for a copy of my chart from the hospital where I had surgery and had spent 22 hours.  It was 162 pages of lies and inaccuracies.  I had been overdosed by narcotics and had an a respiratory arrest.  It was not documented at all.  I was told by anesthesia and the nurses about it, but it was not in the chart. They charted lots of care I never received.  It's making my BP go up just to think about it.  

    When was your surgery?  Once, the bones are healed it seems like the surgeons are done with us. PT takes over from there.

    Really makes you wonder about these doctors. I go tomorrow and I am nervous. Hopefully, I will see the doctor and not his assist. Haven't seen my doctor since my surgery. You would think if they were charging $300 a visit you would get the real deal.
