Today was the day of my appointment with the Urology doctor at the Ulverston Community Health Centre and what a complete waste of bloody time and money it was !!!
I got up fairly early this morning, although as you might have realised with my sleep patterns, or lack thereof, early could mean many things, in this case it was around 7:30am, I came downstairs and had some breakfast and a brew. After a while I went back upstairs, I trimmed my facial hair and had a shower in preparation for my appointment.
I knew of course that my appointment was in Ulverston but had no idea whatsoever whereabouts the health centre was. I needed to find the right place and get there on time. My answer to this predicament was to get a taxi, yes I knew it was going to cost me but the driver would know the location and would get me there in good time, which he did, both.
I got there rather early as I had given myself some leeway in timing for whatever eventuality might occur, this meant that I had quite a lengthy wait to see the doctor.
When I did get into see the Urologist he did no tests of any kind. he asked me how I was feeling, if I was happy with my Catheter, he asked me what the Nephrologist had said then said he’d see me in six months. Like I said what a complete waste of time and money, I was only in with him for, at most, ten minutes and he didn’t tell me anything, I told him, it could have easily have been done at Furness General Hospital here in Barrow, much closer, in fact he was the same doctor who gave me my Cystoscopy at the start of the year in FGH ???
Then would you believe it when I got out of the health centre it was raining, pretty heavily, it stopped after a while but talk about the cherry on the cake. Anyway I had a little wander around Ulverston town Center before getting the bus back to Barrow.
I got home just before 2:00pm and I am now relaxing on my sofa looking forward to nodding off at some point 😁
Be Well, Be Safe, Be Happy 😊🙏💕
