After months with a sore hip and sacrum, I rang my GP up last night to see if x ray results were back. A receptionist told me over the phone that the diagnosis was OA. :shock:
Shocked and so upset is an understatement. I am a student nurse 11 months off qualifying (a 4.5 year course) with 10 months placement ahead of me.
I am gutted. I dont know where to turn. I will arrange to see gp next week but I am scared that a. I won't be able to finish my course, and b. will I ever be employable if I do qualify.
My husband has told me Im being too pessimistic but when I have had chronic pain and the misery of nauseating pain meds for weeks its not so easy to be hopeful.
I just wondered if there were any other nurses out there? Nellie x
