Hi all, since my good news of referral I've come down with a horrible cold! So been tucked up in bed the past week.
Appointment for Birmingham hasn't come through the post yet.. so I'm hoping my doctor sticks to her word !
Having stitches out today 9am -from the punch biopsy a week ago.
Right.. I'll keep it short.
I'm quite thin due to being unwell, & have lost a lot weight. But I've noticed I can't do up my jeans. My stomach is very bloated..
I stopped my intake of wheat.. thinking it was that. But even having soup or a cup of tea makes me swell. & it's very uncomfortable.. hard & round.
I saw the doctor vaguely. & pregnancy test: Negative. But she said does look like you have a melon in there..
She said "it's the vasculitis Laura"
I've never swelled before. I don't have periods..,
I've been drinking fruit water, bowels are ok.
