8 months - am I being irrational?

Postby serbear » Thu Dec 08, 2011 1:23 pm

I got a letter this morning saying I've got another appointment with the consultant I saw last week. For the 28th of August.

I was told I'd get the results from all the tests I had by the end of this week. Have heard nothing about them.

Am I just being irrational? I've been fobbed off for the past 8 months with stupid excuses related to me suffering from anorexia (which ended almost 4 years ago) and now I have to wait another 8 months to do what? End up waiting another 8 months. Not. On. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

No Sarah, you're not being irrational at all :shock: :shock: :shock: It's a ridiculously time to have to wait for your next appt :swear1: :swear1: :swear1: Could either you or one of your family members do something like see if your GP will contact the consultant to see what can be done about getting you an earlier appt??? Lots of things can happen in 8 months, and waiting that long could mean that the results from the tests you've had could be out of date and no help at all.

I was going to go back to my GP today but can't phone because I've lost my voice :cry: 'rents wont do it for me because 'the doctor wont do anything'. They're always on at me because apparently I never take responsibility for anything yet they're the ones physically stopping me. :roll:

Hi
You should call the consultants secretary and ask for the results. :goodluck1:

i had to wait about 6 months see rheumy but when went speak to my gp and she wanted book a second vist i was like omg not another 6 months and she was shocked and said it should only take 4-6weeks. If don't hear nothing back then come back and she'd chase it up. Maybe that might help if you get them chase it up?
I think they like to punish us with these waiting time. In my oppinion i think 4 weeks to long....
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

I went back to my GP yesterday and told him what had happened, he said they hadn't heard from the hospital (so... no one has my results?). Told him how I'm feeling (I was diagnosed with severe depression early teens) and he told me to cheer up (dang, wish I thought of that 5 years ago :roll: :roll: )

I've found some temporary pain relief though (well, moreso warmth) with those stick on patch things that heat up. Unfortunately I wont be able to make them a regular thing because I'm already a broke student :-?

buxbunny - four weeks is about my limit too, anything longer then I can't help but get infuriated :oops:
