How on earth can a doctor diagnose you over the PHONE?!
Looks like im going to have to put up with the pain and worry until tomorrow, when i have to call my docs. Ridiculous!!

Had a swelling for about three or four days. It was kinda a dull aching pain at first but today the swelling has gotten bigger and the pain is much much worse.

I feel obliged to defend the docs considering my DH is one and i will be one in a few years.

Doctors have an incredibly heavy work load and so they can't come out to everyone but if its a serious problem they will try to attend. If they can't they will tell you what to do over the phone (btw they've had at least 5 years training and so do know what symptoms go with which conditions). They will usually recommend making an appointment for the next day or going to A&E if you're that concerned. Remember doctors have lives too and we don't always have time to do everything.

Completely understand that Stich, i really do. But iam willing to drive myself down there, not expecting anyone to come out to me. Im just annoyed that all she could offer me was to phone my docs in the morning, nothing else.
I do understand that docs have a lot of stress and a lot of patients to attend to, i wouldnt like their job Laughing
