Hi, I need some advice from anyone please.
11 days ago my fiance crept into bed with a painful back, the pain is in his lower right side and down his right leg to his ankle.
Over the last week he has been scrunched up on all fours, not able to walk unaided, when he stands his leg gives way.
I called the ambulance to get him to hospital 3 times and was refused and told to call 111 which I did, an emergency doctor prescribed cocodamol by fax to the chemist, didn't touch the pain, our own gp prescribed tramadol, gabepentin and diazapam, didnt touch the pain.
Eventually after calling 111 again they sent ambulance.
The paramedics had to strecher him downstairs while he used gas and air. I was so relieved that at last he would get treatment, I was wrong.
They did an xray and said nothing found, gave him morphine and diclofenic suppository and sent him home on cruches, the journey home in my car was horrendous for him.
He has recieved an appointment for an MRI scan in 2 weeks.
I need to know what I can do to help him in the meantime, I cannot work, he cannot work, we have no help at all for this.
Its heartbreaking to see him like this, he is being so brave but I can see how worried he is, he is normally so fit and healthy, to watch him suffering is really upsetting. He really does need urgent help but I dont know what to do next for him. He cant walk or carry out any normal activity, he is in so much pain its untrue, he is only 43 years old. If anyone has any suggestions I would be so grateful. Thank you.
