OK so this is not strictly a menopause problem, but I feel the need to rant.
I had a hospital appointment today. I thought it was for a trans vag scan (turns out that's NEXT week) But that was OK because the other appointment was to see a surgeon about my shoulder (I have been waiting over 6 months to see if something can be done about my painful shoulder). I had just got the days back to front, yes? No!
A nurse took me in to one doctor and almost imediately another nurse said I was to see another, more senior doctor about my 'biopsy'. Wha? 'Oh for the lesion on your back'. 'What lesion?' I have a mole on my back, I've had it all my life and it has never bothered me one day. I saw a dermatologist over a year ago about some skin tags and warts that have appeared on my arms and legs and she picked up on the mole. I told her it has never troubled me (unlike the skin tags) but she refered me to a surgeon to have it removed. That's what this appointment was for!!
I am SO mad on SO many levels. This eejit talked about cutting out a 'lesion' - I've even been offered 'counseling' for the scar! He totally disregarded anything I was saying. I have been through this before several years ago so it was like a weird deja vu. Last time I went along with it, it was supposed to be a day procedure but they changed it to in-patient because 'of my asthma' - er, I'm not asthmatic. If they get that wrong - what else?
Sorry for taking up so much of your time. But if you have come this far perhaps I could ask you to share any similar insanity. It would make me feel better.
As if we didn't have enough to put up with as it is.
