On Thursday I fell when I was walking back to my car. I landed on my knees and obviously ended up with a lovely bruise on each knee. Over the weekend though the bruising seems to be spreading. I'm not sure if it is just due to the bruising coming out in outlaying areas or not.
I had an appointment with my GP already booked in for Thursday (which was made 2 weeks ago, being the first appointment I could get with them as a non emergency case!) to arrange for a referral letter to Christies but due to the ache and the bruising on my left leg particularly I thought it best to try and get an emergency appointment with my doctor. They have a triage system at my GP surgery and so the doctor rang me back to see if I justified an emergency appointment. I explained everything to him and he said as I have an appointment on Thursday it should be fine to see them then. I don't want to cause a fuss about it but I also don't want to just accept this if it is something I should have checked out, however, I did get the feeling that the GP may have thought I was just trying to get an earlier appointment.
Someone has said I should just go to A&E and arrange to have it checked out just to be on the safe side. Not sure what I should do. Has anyone else had experience of this?
