Some of you might remember that I am having kidney problems and had a ct scan,well its been five weeks since the scan and I hadn't heard anything so I sent an email to pals asking how long should I have to wait for a follow-up appointment a very nice young lady called me this morning after a bit of chat she said I had an app at the end of january but I told her thats gynaecology not urology she couldn't see anything at that moment and would phone me back in an hour or so ,its now been 2 hours since the first call so I'm beginning to think they have lost the results how I would like to know as its all done electronically if I haven't heard by this afternoon I will contact pals again.

    Oh dear, Mig - that`s not a very good state of affairs is it?

    I hope you were phoned back as promised - it`s so frustrating when we have to chase round after results. I hope yours haven`t been lost and you get some answers soon.

    That doesn't sound too good, mig. Did PALS get back with any info?

    I do remember last April when I was desperate for the all-clear from my colonoscopy so's I could get travel insurance for L.A. I asked my GP if she'd heard anything after about 2 weeks. She smiled and said "Oh no. It usually takes longer than that." I think it was about 5 or 6 weeks.

    Well the letter arrived this morning I'm being passed back to gynaecology,ct scan showed that the kidney is less bloated than the ultrasound showed so the consultant thinks it could be relate to the cyst on my right ovary, feel a bit like a yoyo,so now its another wait. Mig

    Ah well, that's sorted and at least it makes sense. No point in tinkering with your kidney if it's all down to the cyst on the ovary. Even so, I hope it can all be sorted quickly. Waiting is not pleasant.

    I have an appointment with my GP to discuss my latest blood test results tomorrow morning ,the tests I had were for thyroid,vitamin d levels.
    I have phoned the gynaecologist secretary to ask about the scan they say I'm to have as I have no knowledge of this appointment and when I said how long I've been passed back and forward and the problems I'm now experiencing she is going to talk to the gynaecologist to see if he will see me without having to wait and have another scan,she said she will phone me tomorrow afternoon.

    I'm utterly lost now but I hope both the GP appointment and the phone call go well.
