In June this year I went to see the top endocrine consultant in our local hospital. He had diagnosed an adenoma on my left adrenal gland, and after having had some tests to ascertain wether or not it was malignant he decided that it wasn’t and all was well. However he said that he had noticed that the adrenal artery on that side was very narrow. He ordered a Doppler scan. I got an appointment in due course for an ultra sound but when I attended, they said that they were scanning my kidneys. I told them that this was incorrect and it was supposed to be the artery. They still went ahead though and scanned the kidneys.
Long story short, I am still waiting for the proper scan and after I lost my rag on his secretarys’ answer phone,( 4th phone call) she got back to me and said that I had got lost in the system. Today, I got a letter from the consultant saying that he had ordered the correct scan TWICE to, his words “ no avail”, and is now referring me to a nephrologist!! How long will I have to keep worrying? Another 6 months!!
