"Queen Elizabeth Hospital Adelaide too quick to diagnose"

About: The Queen Elizabeth Hospital

(as the patient),

I went into Queen Elizabeth Hospital Adelaide with back and stomach pains and creeping paralysis starting at toes. They diagnosed something minor and were going to send me to my GP for toes. I got out to get another opinion. I had compressed spine. I returned and insisted on MRI. They found an epidural abscess. I went to another hospital for treatment. I believe if I had stayed at QEH I would have died.
