For 10 years I was told by a consultant I had RSI in my hand and there was nothing he could do for me and for my employer to buy me equipment to do my job to ease the pain.
Before Christmas I asked my GP to refer me to another hospital for a second opinion. Within 30 minutes of being with the consultant and having an x-ray I was told I had arthritis not RSI and was offered a steroid injection to ease the pain. In January the consultant offered me joint replacement surgery to which I accepted and I'm now in recovery.
Would you make a complaint to the first consultant for mis-diagnoses?
