"I think the doctor at Boonah Hospital should have x-rayed my wrist to be sure is was not broken."
Posted by Cannotwork (as ),
A couple of weeks ago I came off a quad bike and landed on my wrist, the following day being Sunday I visited the Boonah Hospital to get it checked out as it was quite sore and I decided that something was not quite right.
It seemed to me that the doctor on duty decided that it was fine and did not require an x-ray as it would come back normal.
Well yesterday I decided that it was still not getting any better so went to a local doctor in Logan who sent me for an x-ray which showed a small fracture, he has referred me to the fracture clinic at Logan hospital, when I went there this morning I was sent to emergency as there was no appointment, the doctor there has put it in a half cast until the fracture centre call me with an appointment. Now I am unable to work at all and am unsure if they can even fix it as it was over 2 weeks ago, being casual this means no work no income.
I would really like to know why it seems that the doctor at the Boonah hospital would not bother to x-ray to be sure? ? , I feel that if he had I would be well on the way to recovery by now.
I need this sorted asap so that I can go back to work
