X-Rays of my Femur in Philippines

X-Rays of my Femur in Philippines
I broke my femur in 3-4 places according to how you count the pieces when I was 23 years old. I was hit by a car on Motorcycle, I then spent about 10 days in intensive care and seven weeks in traction, after that I then spent one year of my life wearing a caste and walking around on my armpits.

I wanted to explain the complete situation to the Philippines Doctors at both Lorma and Ilocos Regional Hospitals.

Cost
300 Pesos for the appointment with Doctor Chiu the Orthopedic Doctor to order the X-rays.

315 for the two actual X-rays and they sent to me by email and put on a DVD.

Total of 615 Pesos

$12.61US Dollars for a Doctors appointment and two x-rays, a nice feeling to pay this amount. This was done in the Lorma private Hospital, it may very well be cheaper in public ones.

Side view of my left femur.



If you looked at me from the front, this is looking down at my left Femur.

I feel and believe because the bones were not set properly, I have not used my left leg properly for 30 years, and subsequently body was not in structural balance. This has resulted in a causal chain of events leading to me now being in the Philippines trying to stop pain.

I have both Sciatica and a lump, nodule or cyst on my left hipbone.



Explanation of problems with my body, the reason I am here in the Philippines talking to Doctors.



This is one of the many cuts or views from the MRI done in the Lorma Hospital in San Fernando, La Union.

The MRI cost about 150 US Dollars, maybe a couple plane ticket worth of savings. I could send this to an American Doctor for evaluation.

We have yet to discover what the lump is on my back, it could be fat, nerve bundle, or a muscle bundle, and I suppose something else. There is an outside chance it is cancer, but normally cancer grows larger and I am told is a black mass or something. They cannot see the lump with the MRI, or at least Doctor Barnabe was not able to locate.
