This is another area in which my medical records were quite blatantly changed. In the new manufactured records, Dr Panchbhavi says I could 'move my legs and straight leg raise’. Completely leaving out the reason he gave me the exercises was because I couldn’t, lift my legs when asked. Also, you don’t mention the patient can now straight leg raise, after five days, unless they had previously been unable to? As I said before, these first five days are all neatly typed out in good English?
The nurses were still begging him to refer me to Neurology. Six months later, I found out from my Neuro Physio, the worst thing I could have done at this time, was to tighten my knee muscles and push them down into the bed. This caused my legs to become more ‘lax’ than they already were from the Spinal Cord Injury.
I'd continually turn my head a little to the right then a little left, because of the pressure from the fluid build up in my skull and the swelling, although I didn't know what this was then.
But we now know the reasons for all of this are because I had a Deviated Septum with Dural Tears, meaning CSF can get leak from my Brain through my nose and Infection can get into my CSF. Not forgetting the brain swelling and fluid on my brain and because of my broken neck.
When my case was finished I asked for all the x-rays, but was only given one copy of my head x-rays, and NONE of my neck. I didn't realise back then, as I trusted these people, but Karen Thompson of Lester Aldridge had deliberately sent me five copies of the same x-ray. I know they were the same because Alan had taken my nose ring out after a day or two in hospital, and all the x-rays of my head, all had a nose ring in them.
I now know the reason I was not allowed to have the others was because they would have shown the brain swelling, fluid, deviated septum and broken neck.
