Rheumatology Appointment

Hi all I had my appointment today was in with the junior doctor for 2 hours went through everything I told her i think that im starting with phsoratic arthritis. She then asked the consultant to have a look at me. To which he wasn't sure so he's asked for me to go and have scans of my elbows and wrists and also a chest x-ray he thinks it could be widespread OA and just incase i had my bloods done so it's waiting again now for the scan appointments to come through. Also next week I have to go and have a cystoscopy as I thought I had a water infection but when my gp tested my urine there was no infection i told him there would be traces of blood as i always do but when he came back in the room he said the blood was extreme so he put me on the 2 weeks fast track this is my 3rd cancer scare within the last 12 months i get over one thing and my body gives me something else to worry about oh how I love my body 🤣

    You do seem to be having a rough time of it. Hopefully you'll get some answers soon. The waiting is always the worst. Thinking of you. Take care.

    I'm so sorry about this latest scare and setback. I do hope you have better news soon.

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
