After waiting months for my 'urgent' rheumatology appointment, I got a phone call four hours before I was due to be seen saying the rheumatologist needs to self isolate. They can't give me another date and can't tell me how soon or long it might be until I can be seen, but they'll write to me with a new date when they do.
I'm beyond gutted. I understand it can't be helped - I'm sure health professionals come into contact with covid all the time, but I've been waiting for ages for this appointment and had really worked myself up about it because as a seronegative sufferer with normal inflammation levels even in mid flare it seems like I'm always having to fight to be heard.
Private consultation it is then. Just have to find the money first. Ugh.
