I have not had a follow up appointment for my Lymphoedema, i am lucky as mine has been caught early and is treatable with class 3 compression below the knee both legs. I was due an appointment last month for a check up and to reassess my compression. As nothing had come through i made some calls and found that the service has been discontinued in Solihull and there does not seem to be another within the area. I have managed to get a repeat prescription from my GP but the pharmacy has lost my measurements so i am having to use my old sheet which as everything is controlled at the moment will be ok. It looks like i will have to battle again for a referral to another clinic out of the area unless anyone knows of anywhere within the Solihull Birmingham area? Just another case of cuts being made without proper thought. I asked my dermatologist who didn't know of another. He also said he had a treatment that could help me with my HS but they weren't allowed to use it as it cost approx too much so i like everyone else with the condition have to suffer. Just wanted a chance to moan.
