I was referred to hospital by my GP back in December, after only one hour of my doctors visit the hospital called me and asked if I could make it in the next day. I was very pleased and surprised at the quick appointment as it was the Christmas period.
They wanted to check the mole on my face wasn't malignant. I was reassured that it would not travel but asked if I would like to have the biopsy over the Christmas period. I decided against this and then waited until May for my appointment.
I was very pleased with how this went and was in and out in the day. The nurses were all very gentle and the surgeon did a great job with only a very small scar that is barely evident.
Before all of this, I had been having a problem with my finger, it had stated to bend and I could not straighten it naturally. I had had a pre-med in November and then heard nothing. One day I received a call saying that there was no funding for this procedure as it was not urgent. Then recently I got a call asking me to come in for another pre-med and I have now been told that they will go through with the operation. I am not sure what happened and where the funding has come from but glad that my finger will be sorted out.
