I had two appointments. The first was with the Ophthalmologist. He has put me on a waiting list to have my cataracts removed. I think they must be the most intelligent part of me, (well he said they are very advanced). He's going to do the right eye first, should be some time in November.
The second appointment was with my rheumy. As usual, he looked at my blood results on his computer, and with barely a glance at me, started his rant about how I should be on Retuximab. I know my markers are too high, my CRP has crept back into the 100s. I'm just not ready to take that step yet. Anyway, I think I started to glaze over. I think he noticed :oops: He said "Do you want me to shut up about it?" I said "Yes please". Amazing! He actually examined my joints, for the first time in the two and a half years I've been seeing this particular one. He is contacting my GP to see if they will fund Meth injections. He's added sulphasalazine to my meth and hydroxychloroquine. He gave me what he called a "double dose" steroid injection in my bum. And he is going to ask my GP to arrange a home visit from occy health.
I really felt he was looking at me, and not just my bloods.
All in all, a good appointment
