First stage signed off

The surgeon doesn't want to see me again - which is good. He couldn't (wouldn't?) give me the CT films, but did give me the CT report. That makes horrible reading too, when combined with the pathology report that I have already got a copy of. Oh well...

He was a bit upset that I have found myself a new haematologist, but, frankly, I wasn't prepared to wait for his bloke to get round to contacting me.

Onwards and upwards - more (and better) news tomorrow I hope.


  1. Andy that's grt news that surgeon doesn't want to see you again. It is standard practice not to give you the films - what would you do with them anyway? If you wanted a 2nd opinion he would supply them. The report is bound to make awful reading they always do.

    Keep positive


  2. Step by step, hey Andy, that's the way [thumbs up]

    I wouldn't worry about the surgeon being upset - and I don't think that you do anyway - as by nature of his profession he is bound to be sensitive.

    Are you back at work tomorrow? How did the new trousers go down at work, and I don't mean literally?

    Keep +

    I am having problems posting under my follower name... Anyway, it's me, Wolfgang ;-)

  3. Ahh - Wolfie! In an "Amadeus" kind of way...

    I need the films for the haematologist. Without them, he won't know how bad things are in my abdomen... So, he will want then done again. No probs - I'll pay for them myself if necessary.

    Sod the surgeon. It's the next man that I'm interested in now. He's Chinese, but I hope he has more than Green Tea and Needles to offer me :-)

  4. You got in one, Andy. Good movie, "Amadeus", BTW :-)

    Sod the surgeon. Sod'em all.

    Don't knock the old Chinese Medicine, t's been around for a few years ;-)

    Yeah, just pay for CT films and let's move on to the next stage.

    So nice here not to be restricted to 140 characters :-)

    I don't know if it's possible to perhaps have a "Politics" section here . . . [big grin]

    I need to find out about that mobile phone directory enquiries "service".
