"Devastating lack of care at Wesley Hospital Brisbane"

Two back operations for pain down the leg.
About to undergo third back operation.
Neurosurgeon reluctantly agrees to scan leg after Rehab physio says something wrong.
Orange sized sarcoma under knee - back operations not necessary.
Post op care appalling - epidural fails, no pain relief, it seems nursing staff are grads with no experience, takes 4 hrs for anaesthetist to show up.
New tumor detected in stump (or could be a DVT according to radiologist).
Specialist says tumor now in lymph nodes - reluctantly agrees to scan leg after two weeks of thinking no hope.
Tumor in stump is actually DVT - not in lymph nodes (didn't believe radiologist).
Off overseas - nothing more can be done here.
Back home today - going to RBH, never ever presenting to Wesley Hospital again. Prognosis one month - we all hope more.
