Good for you. I know they have a busy schedule but they often seem so cavalier in how they resppod to symptoms.
And how annoying. Its the same when i or my friends go to the doctor about something which we have had for some time and they say "Leave it for x many weeks and then come back" to which you feel like shouting "But I already have left it for x many weeks/months - that why I've come to see you!!!" grrr
Two of my friends in the past three years have eventually been diagnosed and then died with cancer whilst being fobbed off by the GP. I'm not saying their particular outcome would have been any diffrerent but its all the same if it could have been different.
I have suspected Polymyalgia and have been winding down off steroids for the past twelve months partly so the consultant can see how I am without meds. I'll be walking with a stick next like I was last winter. the way I'm going - another month to go before rhe appointment. I suppose I've got to believe this is the only way and I like/trust the rheumy but Hells Bells do they understand how much has to go on hold , e.g. travel insurance,,walking hols.etc. future commitments when you can not be sure how you wil be., etc. whilst the wheels of the NHS grind on,, blood test results get lost, locums stand in and know nothing etc. This is turning into a rant so I'll stop.. Its thinking about plans for the coming year that's set me off
