Finally signed my consent forms at grove, anyone know how long the waiting list is?

I just signed my consent forms today I'm super excited and feel like a loads been lifted off my shoulders, feel like I can relax. I was just wondering has anyone been on the waiting list recently that could tell me how long the wait is roughly? Our doc wasn't too nice today he was a tad arrogant and poking fun at my partner because we aren't living together at the moment (as my partners mother isn't well so has moved back in with her to be a care giver).

Thanks in advance X

I signed last November had treatment in September but got letter in July (which was a bit later than others n I had to ring and ask where I was I think they'd maybe missed me! Shame on that Dr, how rude! My brother to moved in to look after our mummy when she wasn't well recently, his partner moved with him, but if she hadn't he would have still went on his own! So rude! Which Dr was it?

Rosebud, just write him off as having had a bad day, I was with Dr Tang and from I signed forms never seen him again. Although I thought he was dead on but very business no chat. So hopefully you dnt encounter him anymore x

We signed in early september and got the letter for treatment in mid march. On nasal sprays now, injections begin tomorrow. It all feels a bit surreal because it too this long to get here.

Just did the first injection. Not so bad! I followed the instructions about setting up the needle which was easy and then came the old jab itself. Decided to go straight in at the belly. Walked around the room with a handful of tummy in one hand and the needle in the other. Tried the slow approach first. Bad idea as it really pinched. So went again and just kind of stabbed it in and didnt feel anything. I couldnt look while I was sticking it in so I was a bit shocked that it was in. Anyway slight pinch as I injected the contents in but all in all not bad! :thumbsup:

Yeah well done crisso. I'm used to needles I get a large pain relief one guided through an ultrasound every 3 months into my tummy as I had major surgery that resulted in chronic pancreatitis. I'm more afraid that I won't do it right lol I've seen some people say the contest sting/burn when u inject them in did u find this? Goodluck with the rest of your injections. I wish u a happy & healthy cycle xx :thumbsup:

Seriously Rosebud, you'll be grand - did the second one this morning. Again I went straight in (90 degree angle), injected, left it for a few seconds and pulled it out.


It is just a pinch - it hurt a lot less then when you get blood taken as the needle is so fine. I was dreading it yesterday morning before I did it but I was 100% fine today.


This will sound weird but these little jobs everyday (sprays and jabs) are keeping my mind off the bigger job the week after next. I'm taking this just step by step and in a way I am glad I am jabbing myself as I couldn't handle the drama of getting my partner to do it for me. He's great and all but I would internalise the stress he would feeling having to inject me and get stressed myself - you know yourself there is enough going on without adding to the burden.


I reward myself though after the injection with a little sweetmeat and a cup of tea :coffee:

Oh no I couldn't have handled the drama of me doing them. I'm normally really straight forward down to business kind of girl but not when injections are involved! That z when I had my lb I had an epidural and didn't flinch because I couldn't see it. Can I ask did you choose to do yours in the morning or is that the time you were given? I was told to do mine in the evening?

All I recall is that the nurse said don't inject in the morning of the scans in case they need to change the dosage so I am gping for about 9.30am. I don't remembet them saying anything else and none of the paperwork mentions it. Iwill give them a bell in the morning to double check.

Suppose its a different as people have different schedules! I probably done mine at night as it was handy for me. I'm sure they probably told me the same information! I was just asking? I'm sure no difference
