I attended Bunbury Hospital Emergency Department a few days after having had a fall and ongoing persistent pain. The doctor reported the x-ray as being normal.
Two weeks following and with ongoing pain, I asked another doctor to review the original x-ray. The x-ray shows a fracture. Therefore, this fracture was missed and I have not been looking after the fracture site as well as I should have been. I feel frustrated.
