Re: Not me this time.

Thank you Helen and Anne. It is a strange time, a kind of limbo land. Yes Anne, it seems to be a successful operation overall. I read that some are done without the heart lung machine these days, and they are even beginning to do them laparoscopically, though that is far form the norm.

Not me this time.

My husband John had an angiogram yesterday and the news wasn't what we were expecting. He will likely have to have a heart bypass. The left side is blocked and 2 plus a branch( or something like that) are not good on the right side. Maybe those can be have a stent put in, we don't know. He has to ha...

Re: After 13 yrs i have a pancreas specialist appt

Oh my goodness Helen, that rheumatologist :lol: Shocking really, but yes, I did laugh. Well done on being pro-active there, and give him his due, he did apologise and change the way he did things, for you at least, but let's hope it made a difference overall too. My husband saw a cardiologist last w...

Re: After 13 yrs i have a pancreas specialist appt

I think the fact that the specialist agreed to see you is in your favour. They could just have said no. I imagine you will be asked a load of questions, so begin jotting down anything you might think of or remember. Think of areas of pain, if foods bring the pain on etc. I can come away from doctors...

Re: After 13 yrs i have a pancreas specialist appt

I'm so glad you have managed to find a specialist and be referred. I hope now you get some answers. If you can take someone with you to your appointment that would be good. 4 ears are much better than 2 as we can tend to remember different things. Write questions down as you no doubt will forget wha...

Re: Sad news

Is this the Sue that was here pretty regularly, had a TP years ago? I didn't know her last name. So very very sad indeed. Condolences to her family. RIP Sue.

Thank you for letting us know Sharon.

Re: Life as a GP practice manager

Things are never going to change in the overall NHS structure unless someone is very brave indeed. Maybe Trump :wink: :lol: :lol: Erm joke. But it needs someone. By the way, I can remember the post being delivered on Christmas Day when I was very young. Hard to believe now. We went off into town on ...

Re: Life as a GP practice manager

Our surgery didn't have normal booked appointments yesterday(Friday) just emergency ones. John needed one, phoned in at 8.02am and was 4th in the phone queue. "Can I see a doctor today please?' 'Yes of course, can you tell me the problem?' He went and had an electrocardiogram and saw a doctor a coup...
