Having done quite a bit of suffering + research it's quite apparent doctors mainly GP's try to cut cost at expense of your health.
For past year i have been banging on to my GP re referring me to immunologist given my uncontrolled infection rate.
Also have not read in BLF paper work leaflets that if you have Bronchiectasis there is good chance you will have immunity issues and also your Bronchiectasis could be result of granulomatous or Scardosis diseases and referrals to immunologist go hand in hand.
As uncontrolled Bronchiectasis can cause your disease or diseases to progress.
Needless to say i have Bronchiectasis and granulomatous my x gp thought was cancer.
My doctors i.e GP said i have to have condition to be referred to immunty doctor.
Er HALLO Bronchiectasis granulomatous disease and joint bone pain is not enough as well as immunity issues.
Its just good job am not neurotic or would think the trying to kill me threw in action.
Also my lung doctor is addressing Immunity issues BUT i was told usually thats not respority medicines job as its up to gp to refer us.
Here is artical that explains further and better than i ever could.
Is shocking HOW gps know pathology of lung diseases AND try to hide full extent of disease from you.
You can understand partly BUT when you describe various symtoms and the know .. yet look at you like a loon NOW thats not on.
Curantly my GP wont do any imaging as the say i have had to many xrays and its dangerous.
Am looking into private bone density scan AS my gp wont do one for bone pain.
But what i never knew Bronchiectasis and granulomatous disease and bone pain could be result of hypogammaglobulinaemia and should be checked out by immunity doctor.
Is shocking how try hide truth from you BUT at cost of your health.
Am due to have my IGM injections BUT as you can see if your Bronchiectasis granulomatous disease suffer chances of that are very limited in my opinion.
