I've heard a lot of people say that they find their appointments frustrating/upsetting/patronising but this is the first time i've had one of these unsatifactory experiences and it was truely a waste of time.
I'm completely fine with having foreign doctors etc, but I knew i wasn't going to get on with him as soon as he 'called' me in (couldn't even pronouce my name) I told him i wanted to know more about my options for trying for a baby (im currently on methotrexate) and instead of running through them, he pretty much wrote me a note to give to my GP telling him im changing to Azathioprine!? Just like that.
When i tried to ask him questions like 'if i started now, do i take it when i would usually have my next does of methotrexate?', he just goes off on one about either starting it now or starting it whenever i want to try to concieve. Not even answering my questions properly.
Now im going to have to tlk to my GP to find out if he's changed my notes or not yet. I don't even know if that's the medication i'd choose over any other. Apparently there's 3 you can choose from when wanting a baby, but then i read that you shouldn't get pregnant on Azathioprine on the very leaflet he gave me at the appointment!!
I've never felt so uninvolved with my own health before!!! :shock:
