I took a seat and wondered if my crossword puzzle book would last long enough. Very soon they announced that everyone in the waiting area should move through to X-ray waiting room and, being very slow due to my sore hip, I was the last one to make it and I just caught the nurse who was collecting the referral forms before she disappeared. I was still settling into my new seat when my name was called - I couldn't believe I was first! I can only assume that they were working from the top of the pile of forms and, being last, mine was at the top. Within half an hour of my arrival at the hospital I was eating a cooked breakfast in their cafeteria!

I've now booked an appointment with my GP two weeks from today, to discuss the results.
Thanks for the tip on how to jump the queue, must remember that one.

Good you got a quick appointment, hope it leads quickly to a positive outcome.

I'm still waiting for an appointment for my ultrasound scan (I guess that's because sound travels slower than X-rays ) and hoping it doesn't reveal I'm expecting twins.

Regards.

Nobody was more surprised than me that I got to the front of the queue, I actually got quite flustered!

Twins would certainly be a life-changing experience for you, Peter. I hope you have the scan before too long.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

Just me as usual, you went to the cafeteria and then made an appointment to talk to you doctor?

Hope all goes well and quickly.

Gotta get your priorities right!

I made the appointment online when I got home.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

I bet you got black looks from the other patients when you were called first, John !

Anyways, hopefully all goes well for you and that your hip is operable and can be done soon.

If not, then I suggest you try one of them new fangled Hoverboard thingys

I did feel rather sheepish, I was at the end of the line and had to hobble slowly past all of them!

Me on a hoverboard? I'd be a danger to myself and all those around me!

You're right, Bill, they took the other hip as well, just for comparison, and several shots of each.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

Hope they find something that will get you sorted John.......

I have to go for an EEG on Tuesday...the one where they stick all the probes on the head...should last and hour.
Then on the 30th its off to have a 48hour Heart monitor fitted - returning 2 days later for it to be removed.
Hopefully they will find something positive (or negative depending how you look at it) and tell me whats wrong.
I passed out while on the M6 in October and its taken this long to get to this stage.
