Dr just phoned to say that my last X-ray shows some residual pulmonary consolidation and will fast-track my appointment with specialist.
It's a little perverse to be so pleased about this but I've had to state my case so often and had my concerns dismissed for months that I'm feeling justified in badgering them so much.
Conclusion? You know your body and how you feel better than anybody else. Don't be afraid to self advocate or take a family member or friend to support you when seeking help.
