"Doctor wants to book me another appointment"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as the patient),

I had tests at the hospital to see why I keep coughing and clearing my throat.

I had a blood test for allergy to fur and feathers, which didn't show that I am allergic to either, thankfully, because we have a cat and a budgie.

I also had to breathe into a machine to test my lung capacity. I didn't agree to have a CT scan because I was worried about the radiation.

I received a letter recently from Dr T R Naicker which said "your lung function tests are in keeping with a mild asthma like illness. " He also said he wants to book me another appointment where he can discuss the need for a CT scan.
