I have been on watch and wait since my diagnosis in 2012
I was sent to see a heamotologist who advised blood tests every 6 months and was discharged due to my blood results being sent electronically.
I asked to be referred back to her due to fatigue and weight loss, the weight loss wasn't drastic but I had dropped a dress size and am going through the menopause.
She checked me over and sent me for a colonoscopy due to my symptoms, everything was fine so I was again discharged.
I decided to ask at the surgery if I could be referred to a CLL specialist as my weight is still a concern for me as well as the chronic fatigue.
The doctor has just telephoned me and was very abrupt when I asked for the second opinion. He has refused and said i needed to visit the surgery to see a doctor.
He has really upset me with his abrupt attitude. There was no reason why he had to speak to me the way he did.
I feel very confused and haven't any fight in me due to the fatigue.
Have I been a little inconsiderate in my request
Please advice needed for a amateur CLL'r who isn't a very bright spark.
I appreciate your honesty
