I am very frustrated today. I was given an appointment with the Implantologist today which was the second visit to an expensive private practice in Cardiff involving a sixty mile round trip only to be told he couldn't do it as I was on 10mgms of steroids. I told them I was on steroids when I first went there and filled in the form which they clearly didn't bother to read it. He said I could die in the chair and needed to go into hospital and have a steroid drip. The Endodontist I saw first suggested he had another go at the root canal filling but only gave me a 20% chance of it surviving. At the time I didn't think it was worth it but now I do.
I was also told I couldn't have an implant for at least a year. I had to cancel my planned cataract operation today so am very fed up. Thank goodness I have you to share this with, my family must be getting fed up with me as well and I don't blame them.
My daughters dog had surgery to remove four lumps and fortunately they were harmless fat, I need to remember that the antidote to self pity is gratitude.
Incidentally I had problems with the website which was solved by the wonderful staff at HealthUnlocked, in the meantime I had to set up a separate account under the name GrannyRove, she has now been deleted.
Thank you everyone, I would be lost without you.
