I’m not the kind of person who puts something this personal on here but want to warn others of what Ali has been through due to incompetent GP’s Ali has been going to doctors since Mid October to December about her numb fingers and sore back the GP took loads of blood tests and told her it was likely to be arthritis and referred her to a rheumatologist we received an appointment for end of January. A few days before Xmas I took her to A and E as it was ridicolous a 16 year old couldn’t use her fingers A and E told us we were trying to bum rush her appointment and sent her away with painkillers thankfully my boss suggested we go private as this needed answers ASAP within 10 minutes the private doctor said it was not arthritis and he was very concerned he admitted her to hospital the next day that was 10th January by 12th January Ali’s left leg was numb and we got moved immediately to QEH for emergency MRI scan that was 5pm by 8pm that same night we were told she has a tumour on her spinal cord absolutely blown away the rest has been a whirlwind Ali has had an operation and the tests were inconclusive she now possibly requires another operation Which she has had 14 weeks later after they sent us home for 3 weeks she detoriated so bad she couldn’t feel her legs, arms or finger only her neck I had to admit her via an ambulance she was then left for 2 weeks without any physio whatsoever which resulted in blood clots on her lungs delaying the biopsy a further week in the meantime she continued to deteriorate and could not move out of bed at all finally she had the biopsy and within an hour the same surgeon who said 14 weeks ago it was not a tumour confirmed if was in fact and tumour and she would require chemo he then proceeded to tell my daughter in my absence it was a low grade tumour and treatment would be discussed and started the following Wednesday YESTERDAY the oncologist who we have never seen in our live before blatantly tells us there’s nothing they can do the tumour is cancerous and spread to far all thy can do is keep her comfortable destroyed beyond belief my family and I are now looking into any treatment we can to save our girl and stem cell treatment seems an option however this will cost £??? Please help save our Alix
