My husband was in a car accident about twenty years ago and got a metal plate put in his leg. Now, he is having a lot of pain in his hip, but not a single orthopedic doctor will see him without hospital records.
The accident was twenty years ago and the likeliness of such records being found are next to nothing. Also, the hospital has changed names, which I doubt that would make it any more difficult as it is.
We are at a loss here. No one will see him and his pain is excruciating. Other than taking pain medicine, which reallly doesn't help, he NEEDS to see a specialist. What should we do? And why can't the specialist just take x-rays and see what the problem is? I am waiting to hear back from the hospital. I am crossing my fingers. Any advice on how we can go around that whole hospital records deal?
