Hello Joed,

I understand how frustrating it is when you feel like you are suggesting everything to the GP, as the usual answer is it's just Fibro. I think give him is due he is sending you for the scan to investigate this as a possibility, in my personal opinion I think this is a good result as he didn't just put your pain down to Fibro!

If you are worried about the length of time until your appointment you could ring up every so often to see if there are any cancellations maybe? In the meantime, what helps relieve the pain, does heat therapy help?

I wish you all the best

Hello joanne, I am sorry if i seemed to mislead you yesterday. This is the first time that i have heard of Post Ablation Syndrome in the 14 or so yrs since mine and like i said i have never had any problems.

I hope that things will soon get sorted for you.

hugs and best wishes sue xx


I am sorry to hear about your struggles to get help and support I do hope the CT scan shows something that can easily be put right. Keeps us up to date with your progress.x


Hi joed

I am delighted that your GP appointment went well for you, but you shouldn't have to tell the GP what you think is wrong with you? He obviously took your suggestion seriously, hence the scan?

I want to wish you all the best of luck and I genuinely hope that you get a decisive diagnosis one way or another?

All my hopes and dreams for you
