35-year-old mother of two, Debbie Thomason, is permanently paralyzed and housebound.
She claims doctors at the Northampton General Hospital (NHS) misidentified cauda equina syndrome (CES), a serious spinal condition, for typical lower back pain. The misdiagnosis resulted in her paralysis when she sneezed and collapsed in debilitating pain in May 2011. She is now suing over clinical negligence.
Debbie has undergone additional surgeries, but the eight day delay in a proper diagnosis has left her with very limited mobility. She can only walk a few yards and is essentially housebound. Debbie has had to give up her job as a foster parent and is absolutely distraught over the ordeal and its consequences, reports the Daily Mail.
“My life has been completely shattered by the permanent damage to my spine, which I believe could have been prevented if I had received the care I urgently needed.”
