Hi All - I'm ranting! Ranting big time!!!!!!
It's Friday & after another week yet again watching & waiting for the post every morning, I still haven't had my neuro appointment!!! I can't believe how long all this is taking!!!
Over the last month my GP has rang the neuro secretary twice and she initially said it could take up to 12 weeks - this has now passed. Last week my GP sent a 3rd letter outlining the concerns of the ortho doc and the eye doc & the latest from the haemotologist & still nothing!!! I spoke to his secretary last week and she said I would hear from appointments soon.
I was given an 'urgent' referral by the ortho spinal consultant early November - but the neuro secretary said they didn't get the referral until January 4th - so that's 6 weeks to go from one secretary to another and I'm told they are working in the same office !!!!!?????!!!! It must have been Christmas or something!!!!!! So much for urgent!!!
The haemotologist I was under last year referred me to the endocrinologist 7 months ago & apparently the letter got lost!!!
A couple of weeks ago after my brain scan showing a 'significantly enlarged pituitary gland' I was told that she was shocked that I hadn't been seen & I would have an 'urgen't appointment as soon as possible - this has come through for May 1st - again so much for urgent!!!!
I'm falling apart to be honest!! I've been off work for 6 weeks already as my GP won't let me go back until I have seen the neuro.
That's my rant over again!! xxjenxxx
