Hello, does anyone know if i can change the specialist i've been referred to?
he's an idiot... he's rude and unprofessional...
i've been super-nice to him in case i can't!
i have kidney stones - whoppers - i've got all the scans and jazz i need to go through the process. i had to wait 3 weeks to see him (which of course is fine) in my little local hospital. I think he's a visiting specialist. i arrived early, he told me i was late. he asked waht was wrong, had a quick shuffle through my mountain of documents and asked where my X-Ray was ? What ? No-one said i needed and x-ray...
he gave me a prescription and off i ran to the radio dept. he had written the WRONG NAME on the ord. luckily as i've recently had a hip replacement they know me, rolled their eyes and did the X-Ray (they wonder why also) I went back to his office and he had GONE!...
ok. New appointment 3 weeks later, I went with all my paperwork AND the X-Ray - he concluded from it that nothing was broken (?) At this point he'd asked me nothing about the problem. I told him I was in real pain and having attacks about every 10 days (it's the pits...) I told him i regularly had blood in my urine. He said it was probably my periods !!! I said, Mr Blah, I'm 51, I know when I'm having my period.
Ok. He said, I need blood and urine tests - ahah, triumphant I pulled them out of my file - just one week old, the full works. No, he said, I need to see 2 fresh urine tests.
I've now made a new appointment - the next is for 3 JUNE... JUNE! Obviously i've not been back to the lab.
