Sjogren's doesn't stop other stuff happening!
« on: August 13, 2020, 08:35:51 AM »
Hi  :)

I'm just in for a moan basically. With the virus on the go - here in the UK, normal hospital stuff is on a big go slow. I have an orthopedic referral in the pipeline somewhere. I referred by a physical therapist last January - but have no word. A different orthopedic Dr - he does feet but wont look at knees apparently - told me I needed an operation on one foot back in February but it's still on hold.

One thing that IS working is getting referrals for possible cancers. The GP has been swift here. I thought I found a lump on one breast. The GP thought she could feel it too. I was seen within two weeks, had a mammogram and and an ultrasound and was sent away with the good news that I just have lumpy breast tissue - but it's healthy.

I had a telephone consultation with a GP this morning. I made the appointment two days ago. I have a brown line down the side of a big toe nail. I emailed photos to them. I thought they may look at it but without seeing the actual toe I'm being referred to a dermatologist just in case it's a melanoma under the toenail. As they are rare - it probably isn't. So I'm going to get to see them within two weeks too. Waiting for a phone call or a letter.

It's on the foot that needs an operation anyway.

Thanks for listening. Take care - Scottie  :)
