I have just found out that apparently pain consultant has left dept.so all appointments cancelled. Just great Not! They wrote to my gp ,obviously didn't want my quiet accepting reply by contacting me?,and asked them to re refer to pain clinic as confusingly consultants can not refer in house only gp can.So gp tried to do choose book but guess what can't.They have had to send details to hospital so in three weeks time when appointments are opened they can then send me an appointment which will be in 18 weeks time ,which by the way is the target limit.So it will then have been roughly 6months wait for urgent referral for my CRPS as arm already inch and half smaller from muscle wastage Has anybody else experienced this?
Tried calling to see if shorter waiting at other hospitals but couldn't get put through directly ,not a surprise,so going to ask physios advice on the 14th.
I know its not my Lupus probs but folks I need some friendly words to calm and distract as yesterday called for more bloods as results from last week showing up "something we want to double check" .l think they may have finally realised I am a bit poorly.lol.
OK nuff said and hope you are all having good days
