Tomorrow I have my second appointment with the GP with specialist interest in skin. He took over my care when my Knight left in September 2016. First appointment with him was November, when he told me to be more patient with the MMF.
Follow up was due in January but I couldn't make it, so re-arranged.
So this will be my first appointment with him since I meet with the two senior health officers at my MPs office, which subsequently ruffled a few feathers. I know they got my records out and all had a meeting to discuss my case. And I'm not stupid, I know they all think I'm a pain in the ass.
The GP seems personable and nice enough but my point was he's a GP and not a Consultant Dermatologist. And he's the one leading my care apparently, not the Rheumy.
I'm tempted to cancel and not go. But is that being cowardly? Or should I just go and be my normal smiling happy self, pretend nothing is wrong, brave it out. I don't have anything to be ashamed of. Just wanted an expert second opinion and a referral to a Consultant Dermy in Cardiff. Just feel like it might be awkward.
Of course I now know I'm going to London Bridge in less than a month too.
I also know I can't burn my bridges completely at local hospital.
Should I go? Or should I cancel?
