I have had blood test's. I have no idea when my GP wrote to the Consultant who is a gynaecologist. I was under the strong impression that I would have the blood test's then go to a local clinic which specialise in sexual health. [There is no question, at all that there is a sexual health question.] It is just because of their speciality in Gyni problems that's all. Totally bewilder by events that are happening. Getting deeply distressed by the events.
I had my last smear test about 5 years ago. Everything was fine. The Clinic that my GP was going to send me to specialise in gyni problems.
Thank you for the advice. I just don't understand the drama which is most unusual from my G.P. Who is a very good Doctor. I have not lost weight, if anything I have gained weight, which I put down to my endocrine condition. I would just like to know roughly what the Consultant will want to know and why do I have to suddenly see him when there was no mention of a Consultant on my visit to my G.P. Do you feel that I will have to have treatment which frightens me or just go on a medication to settle things down.
Many thanks Ruth.
I just want to thank you for your time and advice. Still feel stressed, but getting to unwind a bit.
Best wishes. Ruth.
Dear Dr Chip.I just wanted to update you on what's happening to me. For the last few day's I have been incredibly stressed. This is partly due to the fact that I have anxiety problems due to the fact that I have a Pituitary illness called Cushing's and, that anxiety is a side effect. I have been naturally stressed, and, I have been stressed by the way that everything has been handled. I have now decided to be in control of the situation. I have done the following ; I have made a complaint to the Hospital over the way things have been handled. I have made an appointment to talk with the Practise Nurse at my G.P. And, I have written to my Endocrine Consultant updating him on what's happened. I know that the reality is that, I will have to have test's to sort things out. But I will insist on being a overnight in-patient and being knocked out for the test's due to my level's of anxiety. Believe it or not, I'm a very level headed person.Best wishes. Ruth
