I rang the GP's Surgery at lunchtime to see if they had any news on my referral to the clinic at Charing Cross Hospital for the treatment of the trapped nerve in my C/Section scar. It's now almost 4 weeks since I saw the Consultant at the Gynae Clinic at QCCH. Guess what? The Surgery has no record of me having been to QCCH so can't help with the next referral. Cue a frustrating hour & a half on the phone to QCCH, being passed from pillar-to-post and even having one woman hang up on me! Eventually someone gave me the number for the Consultant's PA but ... she's away until next Monday. Still, I feel better for having been able to leave a message but can't say that I'm looking forward to another 4-6 weeks with a trapped nerve in my abdomen! I'm beginning to think that obtaining the appointment will be more painful than the actual procedure!!
