Well today was a day to go see my doctor.
The snow was falling, roads clear so off I went, make sure I arrive with time to spare and expecting a 20-30 min wait. No such luck, straight in to see the doctor.
Told him about my aches in my shoulders and pain in my knees. He suggested I stay at 7mg for a while, I was going to tell him I was going to do that, but didn't need to.
He then gave me a form for knee x-rays so of to the hospital for me, another long wait, well we all know what hospitals are like don't we. Handed in my form, took a seat and time to wait. No such luck, just about to search weather warnings when called to the next waiting room. Okay, so here the waiting starts, you what it's like, people milling around and not doing anything. Well I was the third person called to the little waiting room, so I did have to wait for the other two to be seen and then I was in and x-rays taken. The walk to from the car can back again took longer than the waiting time.
Well after the hospital it's off to the chemist to get my prescriptions. Okay they didn't have enough predn for me, I can have what they have in stock, but I said I'll pick them all up on Monday.
Weather is poor, we have an amber warning in place with a red due in a few hours.
That didn't stop anything for me, the doctor was in and ready to see me, the hospital again fully open and doing what I needed really quickly. Okay the chemist didn't have enough predn, but then I have enough to keep me going, so that isn't a problem.
Well done to Parc Canol Surgery, Royal Glamorgan Hospital and Well Chemist.
