Woman Discovers she has Poisoned Bones after Misdiagnosis

A woman has discovered that she has a life threatening bone condition after previously being dismissed by multiple doctors.


Victoria Mann, 33, was told by a trainee physiotherapist that her bones were poisoned after she was instructed to attend physiotherapy when medical professionals told her the pain in her leg was to do with her ligaments or tendons.

Victoria has since been diagnosed with osteomyelitis; a disease which if discovered early on can be treated with antibiotics. However, it was not spotted early and after 14 operations to try and halt the spread of the disease; Victoria says her leg has been left looking ‘as though a shark has taken a bite out of it’.

Victoria said:

“When I first went with a sore knee they said it was probably a blood clot and sent me home.

“But I was in agony so I went back and they said it was a muscle-wasting disease.

“They then told me it was the tendons or ligaments and sent me for physio.”

Victoria, of Hull, East Yorkshire, claims that the trainee physiotherapist pointed out a large black abscess on the back of her leg within only minutes of seeing her, something that doctors had failed to notice. She added:

“The trainee immediately saw something wasn’t right – as my leg had ballooned.”

Left unable to move

Victoria has been left unable to move and now fears that if she stands or puts too much weight on her leg it could shatter. Victoria went on to say:

“I will never fully recover or walk properly again. I won’t be able to play with the girls in the park or go swimming.”

Mike Wright, Chief Nurse at East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, the hospital at which Victoria received treatment, has apologised for any distress caused. He said:

“We have subsequently investigated the concerns Miss Mann raises, including those in relation to timeliness of diagnosis, and we have responded to her about these directly.

“We are sorry if Miss Mann feels let down by the Trust and would like to apologise for any distress she has experienced.”
