Having had a barium enema that showed "no abnormalities and I have no concerns" according to the colo-rectal Consultant I was told I would not be seen until May/June and had put my hopes of a resolution to my ongoing pain into seeing gynae in April. I have called my Consultant's secretary a few times. got my GP to write a letter last week asking for me to be seen as urgent. I chased the letter up on Tuesday and it hadn't got there.
Finally I got a result! The Consultant's secretary called me today to say there is a cancellation for Monday so she has given the slot to me as "I know you are desperate for a resolution".
Just goes to show if you nag enough then things can happen! Now I just need the Consultant to talk sensibly to me and listen to what I say; taking my husband along as back-up along with a pain/poop/food diary. Sadly more of the first two and less of the third but then when you have pain you don't tend to want to eat but at least he can see I try to do healthy things.
