    Hi yes I became disabled in 2014 as from 2005 doctors did nothing about my knees and hip or shoulder actually they ignored me and I was asking from 2008 when I moved to Blackpool for my results but my doctor did nothing for 8 years and Northampton did nothing for 3 yrs but I became so I'll early 2014 I could barely walk my friend at the time got me to change doctors so I did and I went to a new doctor and told her I'd been asking for my results since 2008 so she had a look and couldn't find them so she made me a referral to see a specialist and he could not believe the state my knees were in I had osteovascularnercrosis in both my knees and replacements were my only option but I was told because of the state of them they might not work as they were not just replacements I actually had to have half of my lumber drilled into as it was major disgusting actually and the same doctor I had in 2008 ignored me about my back hips and shoulder and I've had to have major surgery on all parts but as a result of there neglect I'm now disabled as nothing has worked and only tomorrow am I finally getting an MRI on my back since 2005 because since I moved to Blackpool in 2008 no one has done anything at all so that's what I've been through the past 6 yrs I've had 6 operations I'm in so much pain and I'm sick of it all now
