"Still undiagnosed after ENT referral"

About: Borders General Hospital / Ear, Nose & Throat

(as the patient),

After being treated for 9 months by my GP for nasal sores and bleeding with various creams etc (which only gave temporary relief and as soon as stopped symptoms returned), I was referred to ENT. The ENT said in his letter to my GP that was not my sinuses, when I never had a sinus problem and my GP never said this either. I asked for re referral and was refused.
