Bad on back

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

IF you have a “bad back”, do not bother pre­sent­ing to Townsville Hos­pi­tal as they will not do any imag­ing, and med­i­cate to the Panadol Forte level. That is what I ex­pe­ri­enced re­cently and in­formed by the doc­tor in Emer­gency.

Sub­se­quently, I was ad­mit­ted to Mater Hos­pi­tal and with an MRI was di­ag­nosed with a bulging disk, and re­quired mor­phine to re­duce the pain I had suf­fered on a con­stant and se­vere level for seven days.

TIM McNA­MARA,

Rosslea.
