Hi all, how are you now that the festivities are coming to an end? I hope all is well !!
Anyway let me get to the point, as some of you know, apart from my fibro, I have other very severe health issues that involve different specialists, well I had an urgent referral to pain management made about 3 and a half months ago (this is urgent by the way) by my GP, so they sent me the letter with my code and a number to ring, which I did and waited for my letter to come through with a date, after one month I phoned and said when am I going to get a date? And they said it was difficult cause there are so many people going and not enough staff and that they would get hold of me soon, so I waited another 3 weeks and whent to my GP and she said she would phone and find out what is going on, so I waited again and the beginning of December phoned again and they said to me that there was still no date and not to worry as a letter would come to me with a date, on the 15 I had an appointment with my oncologist and told him about it and he said that he would find out what was happening as he was not at all happy this was going on.
On the 24 of December I get a letter saying that I had not gone to my pain management appointment on the 20 of December nor did I bother to get in contact with them so they have decided not to see me again and they think palliative care would be better for me instead !!!!
So yesterday I whent to see my GP and told her and showed her the letter and she said to me that when she spoke to them, they said to her that I had an appointment made for the 29 of December !!!
So it seems to me that pain management have decided that my case is too complex and complicated for them that they have thrown the ball ontop of someone else's roof so they don't have to deal with my situation, and in the meantime I have to put up with pain, problems getting around and doing just the normal things in life, others take for granted !!!
Anyway I won't carry on as I have given you enough to read for today hahaha and I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve and that next year is better than this one !!!
Gentle hugs to all xx
