Hi all, I think I just need some empathy so I dont feel like an idiot! Ive had 3 ops so far and after my last treatment of zoladex my problems have returned. After being in a lot of pain recently I asked my doctor to refer me back to my consultant. I wasnt sure if to see the one i've seen before because even though I rate her as a surgeon I dont find her easy to talk to and sometimes quite dismissive. She once said she thought I was depressed and the stress wasn't helping my pain management (errr hello its the pain thats making me stressed and depressed!!) I was feeling quite nervous yesterday but thought I was ok this morning and thought I'd be able to articulate myself relatively well. Anyway I went to my appointment this morning and after waiting for 45 minutes I checked with reception if I was next (this is a private appointment not nhs) Apparently I had been missed and my consultant had somehow just seen the people who were after me and id got left out. The consultant came out and said to me that she couldnt see me today now as she was too busy. ....... I burst into tears!!! In the waiting room which was full! I rushed out the hospital as I couldnt speak, ignoring the consultant. One of the staff came after me and asked me to go back in and a very kind nurse spoke to me and apologised (although it wasnt her fault). The consultant came in too and I felt a bit stupid she said she would see me another time. After speaking to the nurse we decided that Id see someone else so she is going to ring me and book me in with someone else hopefully this week. I have been in so much pain I just wanted the appointment, not sure where my outburst came from but I now feel quite embarrassed and just needed to share I think. x
