Clair, I'm stunned that your hospital missed such an important issue, but so glad that you persevered as you knew something was wrong - essential that you're complaining.
Had a quick thought that I could visit Chelsea show, just looked and tickets are £100 PER DAY, ouch, so will be happy with Mr Don tonight.
Janey - could your hard lump be swollen lymph node - can get infected for lots of benign reasons.
Big group hugs to us all, as specially requested by Dizzy. Love n stuff fluffyheads xxx

Thank god you were aware of the symptoms and were able to access treatment so quickly. I would really not like to be in that Hospitals shoes it is disgusting that they ignored your alerting the chance to them with the kind of op you had and knowing your medical history, well done you for making a stand xxxx

Okay so I went out to buy my friend a birthday present from the little shop in a garden centre, agapanthus, campanula, 2 begonias and a corkscrew rush later, I bought her present. Had to be done

Oh goodness, I checked in here expecting the usual chat, or no one at all to be around. But it's quite a morning.
Lesley, a really nice GP should make all the difference. And with any luck you'll get your mind put at rest over the painful bits. But at least they're getting on with it so you should hear soon.
Clair, well done you for diagnosing your own DVT, I'm glad the doctor was on the ball but you were the one who spotted it. But bless you, it's just been a constant stream of things, I hope they get on top of this pdq.
Janey, oh bless you too, this is so horrible for you. I know they say anything worrying is usually painless, so hopefully it's just a little cyst or something. But you're bound to panic, we all would. And you have had so many other things to worry about too, with the genetic tests.
Anyway, I think we need a group hug, Ruby, I'm relying on you for the illustration!

Oh my lovely fluffy friends, especially Janey and Clair, what manky rotten days you're having. There is no fairness to life sometimes, and it's right to scream and shout as loud as you can. Love and hugs.xxx

Good luck with the scan Clair. Janey, get on the phone first thing Monday morning. Sorry to moan, but surely at least one BCN should be available at all times, Monday to Friday, after all when you go into to nursing you're lucky if you can 9-5 Monday to Friday without expecting to have Friday's off as well.
Ive got my X-ray 4.10 this afternoon, that's really good, then just got to wait for a call or letter about the bone scan. All of us are having a rough time one way or another, thank God we have each other (not sure if I'm a believer or not, keeping my options open, can't hurt)
Just going to grab something to eat Before making my way back into to town to the hospital. Catch you all later xx
