I referred myself due to an ongoing problem with my shoulder whilst awaiting an orthopaedic out patient appointment. I went prepared ie describing my symptoms and the time line, the modifications I have made due to my restricted functioning and my discussion with my immediate line manager around helping me to stay at work.
The doctor who saw me engaged with me right away, he was interested in what my job was to gain a perspective, he listened to me, he advised me re pain management and the different groups of drugs used for pain, he revised the arrangements with me for me to remain at work, and he made a further appointment with me to review my situation.
I left the appointment feeling hopeful and I felt valued for my efforts to remain at work with whatever support is necessary.
