Clock stopped - Anesthetist needs a face to face!
Just look at these timelines and the fact that decisions are being made based on out-of-date information.It feels like those entrusted with my health care don't realise that Systemic Sclerosis is a PROGRESSIVE condition. I really hope that the clock does NOT stop but gets a bloomin shimmy on because I'm furious at the delay in getting treatment while my quality of life slips further and further downward.
When a surgeon tells you that other people have been 'in progress' a lot longer it is irrelevant and frankly unhelpful. I think it is shameful that people are waiting years for treatment they clearly need. My personal worry is that when the laparoscopic procedure finally goes ahead, it will be too late and be abandoned as inappropriate.
