Am waiting for results of bloods for Addison's disease and have had a report from endoscope saying possibly coeliac.
Rang to get appointment with GP yesterday. Can't get one for five weeks and GP's secretary says my stool test came back at 119 with a range of 0.00-50.0 and a note from lab telling doctor to discuss this with me.
If I hadn't rand, goodness knows when that discussion would take place.
I always have to wait over a month for appointment, despite heart issues and seizure etc.
The test was two months ago and I have to wait over a math for appointment.
