I had a skin biopsy done three weeks ago now. They had to take a sample from the base of my neck and although it didn’t hurt as such, for some reason I ended up with a really sore throat, that won’t seem to clear up. It goes off a bit and then comes back with a vengeance.

I was given an appointment after the biopsy for the follow up and it was in August, which I was quite disappointed about. I thought as I had tests done they would get me back in sooner to get the results, but obviously not.

Anyway I got a letter the other day saying that my appointment has had to be cancelled and has now been moved to September. Needless to say I am not impressed.

I was hoping to finally get some sort of answer. I am on a waiting list for major surgery again and have my pre-op in a weeks time (I had to cancel the original one as I was too ill to attend). Every time I see someone at the hospital I have to go through an interrogation about my rash and have to explain that “no I haven’t been burnt in a fire”. So then I get the “oh what’s causing it then“? Heck if I knew that then some of my troubles would be over.

I am sorry to moan, but I am feeling like I am never going to get any answers or any treatment and quite honestly I don’t know what to do next.
