I missed my appointment at the rheumatology clinic because I was not well. I now find that my new appointment will not be until August, I feel there will be little point in going then when my symptoms will be better due to the higher atmospheric pressure. I really need to be seen during the winter when the cold and low pressure affects me.
I sometimes wonder if the surgeons are hearing what I’m telling them. The orthopedic surgeon gave me a disclaimer and would not listen to me, he was not interested in looking at CT scans or x-rays. I need to know a) whether I can have an operation and b) what is the cause of the problems I’m having and how can it be fixed.
I need to know whether I am able to fix these problems and if not I who can?
I have three conditions which are all coming together and affecting me – a slowly deteriorating hip joint; a nerve problem and bursitis – all separate, independent issues but all coming together in one leg.
This is not a complaint, I need to understand and be seen quicker. It’s now a year since my last appointment and I’m still in pain, except when the weather is warm and pleasant. It seems that I’m always seen when I am having a good spell and don’t seem to be seen in cold weather when my condition is not good
