Well got 3txt reminders from the hospital telling me that if I don't attend it costs £160for missed appointments, as I was supposed to be having a very important p.e.t. scan they inject a radioactive isotope into you wait an hour and the scan is similar to a colour 3d scan and the radiation gravitates to any cancer cells . So I dutifully didn't eat only had water got on the bus and was in the que of traffic trying to get into the hospital when my mobile rang , very sorry our scanners broken can we reschedule for tomorrow, ok says I, about 4-30 my mobile went again, we need a part from Germany can we reschedule for next week Thursday or Friday, I reminded them that my consultant appointment was for Wednesday, so they are going to fit me in Tuesday and make sure the results are ready for my consultant on Wednesday. I am so glad this particular department was sold off four years ago and is now private, not .
The NHS is dead, fend for yourselves, first my cancer pet scan was cancelled three times , now they have cancelled my consultant appointment which was due tomorrow, it's now supposed to be next week.fuking pissup and brewery comes to mind.
update , great news for me ,not so good for you lot means you got to put up with me for a while longer, the chest consultant says there is something in my other lung but its not cancer as yet gave me all the options so I suggested that we leave it for another 12 months and do another scan and review it then , so I am ok for at least another year.
