I am new to this forum and also new to having fracture of my neck C5.
I was released from a local hospital yesterday having spent 3 days there while a number of investigations were done. I am a present wearing a collar while I await appointments to be confirmed, the pain i am experiencing is very high, maybe a 7 on the pain scale. I have been given Tramadol 50mg by the hospital to tale every 4 hours, these do have some effect but only for an hour or so.
Will the fact that i was taken to hospital by ambulance without a neck brace on and made to wait a number of hours prior to the correct diagnosis have any long term effects of bearing on my self and my ongoing pain.
