Hey there! Let's start with the small bit of good news, I'm heading into my 2nd week and no stomach pain or problems at all. After the doctors changing their diagnosis from Gastritis
to Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
, they decided to increase the amount of medication I'm taking to treat it. So not only do I have to take medication in the morning, I now have to take one at night as well. It's an inconvenience but it seems like they're finally working. I won't jinx it though, just keeping my fingers crossed for the time being. I've never felt this good though, I can actually bend over again without horrific pain (only for a short period of time though) and I'm slowly able to eat certain things that I couldn't tolerate a few weeks ago. I'm hoping we're heading in the right direction here.
Anyway, the reason for the title is pretty simple. Regular visitors of this site may remember me saying the ENT appointment I had got cancelled by them - not me! I decided to phone them to follow up what was happening. After explaining the situation to 3 different people, I finally got an answer. As my appointment got cancelled, I was re-added to the bottom of the waiting list again and I've got to wait ANOTHER 16-18 weeks
before I'll hear anything in regards to my appointment. They said I'm currently only 8 weeks into this process. This is such bulls***. I could understand if I cancelled it, but I didn't - they did. Why am I having to go through the beginning process all over again. I've had chronic sinusitis now for almost 2 years. I'm far from happy about it, so could be April I actually hear something ... when the appointment will be booked in for will be another thing.
Seeing as my stomach isn't hurting as much and it's only my sinuses, I've come to the decision that I won't let my sinus problems stop me doing what I want to. It has done all this time but enough is enough. My mission as of now will be to catch up on a few things I've got to sort and then I'm going to start being more active on this site with more frequent updates! Thank you everyone that voted in the poll for suggestions, I'll be taking all of them on board and working on getting them added asap. I'd also like to thank everyone for their kind messages, there's been a lovely amount of people sending messages wishing me good health and I'd like to thank each and every one of you that has. It means a lot to me, there really are some amazing people out there. Hopefully, chat soon! Take care everyone ♥ ox
