has anyone had a problem with the reports from prof A (or his team) taking ages to arrive???
i'm waiting to start on a course of antibiotics to treat my gut infection that's been causing me loads of cramping and pains. been waiting more than 6 weeks now and nothing. sent 2 emails to the prof's secretary, and to the prof and recieved no reply from either..... the longer i wait the worse my health gets. the pain is hitting levels that i cant tolerate and i've started to have a massive problem tolerating anything solid. tum even has tantums about liquids. I know they're really busy but i've waited patiently for long enough now, especially considering they've 'forgotten' to give me more than 1 appointment in the past (requiring me to chase them up about it and wait and wait and wait for a reply about it), and i had to wait 5 months longer than i should have done for my phone consultation in early January and wouldnt have gotten it at all if i hadnt been adamant that i should have had it in july. so my 4 monthly followup became more than 10 months
. i wouldnt have minded if everything was going ok, but i've been having big problems all last year and they know this.
dont want this to get totally out of control like last time when i couldnt eat anything thicker than water for several weeks and had to wean myself back onto solids once i'd managed to finally get rid of the infection and settle everything down...... it took FOREVER
i guess i shouldnt have agreed to the phone consultation- should have put my foot down and been adamant that i wanted to be seen in person, at least that way i could leave with a prescription and not have to wait for it to be written up and posted to me whenever they decide to get round to it.
my pain and reflux is so bad prof A has doubled a lot of my meds but i cant start the extra doses etc till that darned report arrives. and every week the pain and reflux are worse.
everything i eat and drink comes back up into my mouth over and over again, it's really not nice.
so if any of the team at barts are reading this- i'd like my report please.
