Hi..

Since being diagnosed last year..i have visited my RA clinic several times...

To cut a long story short..ive been asked to come back in as sulfa + my liver dont seem to be on speaking terms...so they want to put me back on hydroxy..all straight forward and no issues..

However..this time ive been asked to go the the RA Day Ward...

Any ideas why this may be...im not overly concerned as theyve already told me on the phone what will happen re the meds...but just curious as to why its a different dep?

(Still have a clinic app for August)...

Thanks in advance

(Sorry if this is a daft question...)

Shelly xx

    Well..day ward is just where nurses run their clinics..but where they can also give transfusions etc..

    For me it was just a regular appointment to get me back on hydroxy x

    Thanks..it was a positive appointment..i left feeling like I was in control....she had suggested an injection in mu finger..but when she saw the sheer panic in my face...she didnt push me..

    I now feel like they will make the suggestions..but its ultimately my choice! Thats HUGE releif!!
