Hi Kevoreally,

Sorry to hear that your mother is unwell. You are naturally anxious.

Can I suggest that rather than getting the run around with numerous doctors appointments, that you seek a referral to a General Physician (that's what we call them in Australia).

General Physicians

* are highly trained specialists who provide a range of non-surgical health care to adult patients

* broad range of expertise differentiates General Physicians from other specialists who limit their medical practice to problems involving only one body system or to a special area of medical knowledge.

* care for difficult, serious or unusual medical problems and continue to see the patient until these problems have resolved or stabilised

For extra information here is the Australian website to guide your thinking
