I have tried not to come on here this week as I didn't know what to put and have been a bit too worried but thought i'd come on and let you know the latest kick in the teeth, anyone not familiar with the story so far please read previous posts.
Quick and easy bit:Good news Thursday mornin Aus police check came through!!!
Bad news: Thursday afternoon: Panel Doctor from medicals week before (which he sent us away saying we were both fit and healthy) called there are a few things that have shown up on my right lung, Diaphram doesn't work, bottom third of lung is paralised, above that is a dark shaddow, above that my lung branch is distorted and disfigured and above that the main nerve supplying lung looks like it's died!!!!!??????? he was surprised when I said that I was not coughing up blood!!
He advised me to go straight to my GP he had already forwarded radioligists report and xrays to him, GP explained it as much as he could and said the main worry was the obyious but not to worry until i'd seen a specialist!!!!!!!! how easy is it not to worry when you hear something like that.He told me to go private as I needed to see someone A.S.A.P
Trying to keep it short:
with help from our new friends from POM's nina (ian, nina and george) she put me in touch with a specialist in liverpool who has fit me in on the NHS and I have got an apointment for friday morning, his seceratary said he would see me and then decide if I needed to have a CT scan if so he would arrange one for me, after being so worried and upset we tried to put it to back of mind and enjoy weekend as much as we could.
Monday his seceratery phoned me, the specialist had read my report and wants me to have a CT scan sooner rather than later!!!! so I am booked in for tomorrow morning (thursday) then on to my appointment with him on friday.
We are staying positive but are getting fed up with the amount of brickwalls we keep hitting along the way, this surely has to be our last challenge to see if we really want to get to Aus!!!! Can't believe the year we have had, then again if I had not had meds it may not have been found.
Anyway I will keep you all posted, hopefully it is just something I have always had and not too serious,
