Hello Cathygo

I'm sorry to hear that you are dealing with this health concern at the moment. We know that waiting for tests and results can be a particularly difficult time. Until those tests are completed it's impossible to say what this may be and it may be that even after your scans that the Consultants need to complete more tests to be able to give you a diganosis. 

Have they given you any indication how long you may have to wait for your appointments? Hopefully it won't be too long. 

If you'd like to talk things through with one of our team of nurses then you're welcome to call them on 0808 800 4040, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. 

I hope you have some news soon. 

Best wishes,
