My NHS scan will take up to 4 weeks, despite the fact the coil may have migrated or perforated me. I know that this is unlikely, however to be in this much discomfort for another month is not something I can contemplate. I am therefore paying for a scan privately tomorrow night.
Unbelievably this same GP said the coil does not need to be removed for another two years, so suggested I just left it! I reiterated again my view that it may be directly linked to my coccydynia, but she would not accept that. So she would clearly be content to leave me in this much pain for a further two years. She obviously did not take anything I said seriously, least of all my pain.
Shame I can't see my usual GP for this.
