Thank you to everyone that left a comment about my gripe with the medical profession. Looking at your experiences it seems that we all are having similar problems with them. It looks as though the problem is endemic. It doesn't leave me with much faith in in them but this year has really knocked me so far.
Sometimes it feels like an uphill struggle though doesn't it. I always thought doctors were there to help and by rights you'd get the correct treatment etc.. Alas like everything else you have to explicitly ask for something or politely tell them you want something or you won't get it.
My doctor was going to send me for a follow up X-Ray, I asked for a CT Scan so he said he'd send it as urgent. If I hadn't have asked I wouldn't have got. It's a bad state of affairs we're in.
I'm supposed to have an MRI Scan for a suspected trapped nerve in my spine on Saturday but after a month and a half of waiting I don't know if I'll be able to have it because I can't stop coughing! That's one thing that isn't the doctors fault.
Oh well onwards and upwards as the saying goes.
