always feel like i need a decontamination shower after i leave here.
have had the misfortune of visting the endocrine clinic for 3 years as my medical history does not fit their textbook of symptoms & cures, i am still at square 1 with my hyperthyroidism putting me a huge risk of a thyroid storm (which in half of cases is fatal) from their inability to make a decision & treat the patient & getting told different things by different people.
have now been referred to a 3rd diff hospital & 4th diff consultant! if i succumb to a thyroid storm i will be holding QE & the endocrine staff fully repsonsible.
during this had to have regular blood tests to monitor my hormones, "oh it only takes 15 mins" said 3 of the consultants, shortest wait time was an hour longest was 4 hours! far too many people, not enough seats, always baking hot in there, plenty of health tourists though!
staff do not care this hospital is not fit for purpose, PALS is of no help either, still waiting for treatment nearly 4 years after being diagnosed.
