I have been suffering with neck pain and headache for three years. I decided to pay to see a consultant who looked at the results of my M R I scan and he diagnosed arthritis and pinched nerves. He then arranged for me to have facet injections. When I arrived at the hospital I was asked if I wanted to pay before or after the treatment I hadn't been given any information about how much it would cost and was shocked when I was told that it was fifteen hundred pounds. I was taken through into the treatment room where the radiologist ignored me he then came in to see me and told me that he was going to do six injections and it would be painful . I was told to lie on my back and put into a CT scanner. I was concerned that he did the injections from the front of my neck it was very painful
After the treatment I saw a lot of blood on paper towels. He was very dismissive of me before and after treatment. I had to wait three months to receive a report
The treatment had no effects whatsoever on my neck pain in fact I am also now suffering with throat pain
Sorry to ramble on but I am so upset and feel let down.
