It's a long story, but I know she won't tick the box as I don't HAVE any comobitities, but am PRE a few!
I also only moved to this area a few years ago, and she feels she's "not my GP"..
However I can't go back to my old one as he's getting cancer treatment atm..
Although she has my files, she feels she "doesn't really know me too well" -- and this was all stated just when I was asking her for the referral.. I got a lot of eye rolling and terse face pulling over her glasses... It was difficult and uncomfortable.. When I tried to discuss all the issues as to why I wanted the surgery, she seemed just in a hurry to get me out of her office..
Her little size 6 body just wouldn't understand anyhow... *sigh*
Yes, I think I'll have to look at finance for the difference after PHI.. Although things are already strapped atm.. This is why I was really wanting to access my super!
I can't give up though.. I'm sick of missing out on living life...
Apparently I read I will need a form from the GP as WELL as the surgeon...?
I'm seeing him in a few hours (the surgeon) so will ask him further then...
Thanks guys for the support xx
