just a quick update!
Posted 12 April 2011 - 07:05 AM
I am finally on the right road at last to a scleroderma specialist. my general practitioner just rang and said that the PCT have approved my referral to a specialist outside of our area and that she has done the referral letter which should be posted off today so my appointment should be through soon.
I am so excited like a kid in a candy store and I suppose that sounds mad but I so need to get on the right meds instead of meds being added in for each new symptom I've run out of fingers and toes to count the amount of meds I am on.
So as soon as I get appointment through, which shouldn't be too long she said, I will update you all. Things are not too bad at the moment fingers crossed and toes haha, the only thing worrying me is the 40 minutes approx journey to get to the specialist as she is not in my area, but hey I'll survive. If you can live with this you can find a way to deal with anything, right?
Anyway hugs and loves to you all,

Glad to hear you will finally get the appointment you need/want. I agree, 40 minutes is nothing more than a piece of cake...where there's a will, there's a way, and no doubt you'll find it to get there. Good luck and keep us updated!

Excellent news hunny, I hope that it proves totally helpful and you come away from the appointment feeling "that at last you have arrived"!!!
Im sure the 40minute drive will be worth the discomfort, good excuse to stop off and have a lunch and a drink on the way!!
Let us know how it turns out, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you Queenie
Hugs and warmth
