Later in the day the nurses raised the head of the bed and supported me with more pillows, as I was unable to support myself. Even then, unless my head was propped slightly forward, I couldn't breathe or move anything!
I clearly had fluid on and swelling of the Brain which in itself could have caused or worsened my Syrinx due to it not even being recognised let alone treated. This probably contributed to the size of it. I know the Syrinx was caused by the accident though, as I couldn't move my legs. The seizures I suffered when coming round from the operation were due to swelling of the Brain and had a Dr bothered to come when called by the nurses? Who knows? If someone had recognised this then, my Syrinx might have been lessened or healed.
Perhaps by finding and treating my broken neck, back and coccyx, I would have less arachnoiditis, calcified arachnoiditis and arachnoid cysts?
I will never know.
This is just one of the stages where my medical records have been blatantly changed though.
If they knew at this point I had a broken or dislocated neck, then why didn't they put some kind of neck brace on?
Why would Dr Vinod K Panchbhavi instead, order a sling to support a broken wrist, which would have dislocated my neck making things worse, increasing the size of the syrinx? I even have photos of the day after my accident showing a sling round my neck to support my shattered hands, broken wrist and elbow.
Yet my medical records have all been neatly typed out for these first five days in hospital and say I had a dislocated neck and a penetrating ankle wound!
I was being fed by the nurses, but as I couldn't eat anything due to my jaw not working, I was fed weetabix.
