I can’t see my doctor due to the COVID pandemic so I have to ring the surgery and request a call back.
I appreciate that everyone is in the same situation and he is very busy but when he does call I get the impression that he is not taking me seriously at all .
In the past he gave me an injection for my shoulder which helped tremendously but I have recently asked if I could have the same treatment for my hip which is progressively getting worse. I have had three falls in 2020, they have all been caused by sudden sharp pain shooting up into my groin causing my leg to give way. These falls resulted in a fractured wrist, I was really lucky I didn’t fracture my right thigh bone and an injury to my right foot that meant I had to use a boot and crutches for three weeks.
my doctor is unwilling to give me the injection in my hip because it’s a complicated procedure he wasn’t sure would work anyway..
I feel like there’s no hope of getting any help. Because I am on anti depression medication my doctor is also reluctant to prescribe me anything stronger than paracetamol or cocodamol however, on Thursday he begrudgingly prescribed codine which I think he only did to shut me up.
my mental health has spiralled downwards too. I live on my own so even having a bath is challenging. I know there are many people experiencing horrendous situations which makes me sound so selfish for which I can only apologise. Maybe someone can just offer some advice that I could take comfort in.
If any of you have made it to this point, just thank you for sticking with me.
Stay safe everyone, in these uncertain times and I wish for you all a healthier and safer 2021
