Good evening. Two weeks ago I banged my elbow, the morning after I had reduced movement and a lot swelling. I presented at the local ED and was seen by an ENP who after an xray said it was not broken, to his surprise due to the amount of swelling, so I was to mobilize it as much as possible. Yesterday morning I awoke to an elbow for times the size it would be so I went to the GP who sent me to hospital to be told "oops, we have had a consultant look at it and we missed it" I've now got a collar and cuff and have to rest it for three weeks. Its so painful that I am now on Oramorph and not sleeping. I was told this in front of other patients waiting to be seen which made me very embarrassed. What should I do, should I seek the advice of a solicitor, I am concerned about loss of function and how I was treated. Thank you in advance
