About a month ago I was sent to the Physio and the list was for Fibro, also help with my knees and hips (need replacement but not right age apparently ) also could they give me some exersises for my weight. Well the Physio guy read the letter from the specialyst and said " this is far too much for you to have delt with in a days physio. You need one app; for Fibro and another for your knees etc....and they havent taken into account the fact you have CVFS as well , with that he said if you dont mind I will call the hospital that is dealing with your Orthopedics,and see if they will take you on there for Rhumatology ( spelt wrong maybe ) and keep it all under one roof,but you will have to go on seperate days. "
Well he called them and they said yes, but he needed to get me referred by my Dr. So he wrote the Dr a letter. After I had recieved the letter I waited no appointment arrived,by now I was worse,as I cannot walk,and flareup of fibro.....So my husband called the Dr's surgery...still no app; he then went into the surgery and said how ill I was and had they refered me "Oh no " they said but we will talk to her Dr and he will do it today.....three days later still no answer to let us know he had done it...My husband called again and was told "he is not here today but will speak to him asap and will call you" ...Still no phone call all week. Then today I get a letter from said Dr saying can I make an appointment to go to see him about some phone calls I made to the practice over the last 2 weeks!!! .................Called the surgery and I can see him a week today......so now got to wait another week before he even does anything...............Sorry for the rant but it has taken 14 months to get this sorted and I am exasperated. .........................Does anyone else have this bother with GP's. ........Now worried about what the letter means ........
Again sorry for the rant but had to get all this out of my head or once more I wont be able to sleep.....and off we go again!!!
Gentle hugs to all x x x
