Not asking about the difficult asthma protocol - no idea if that's happening or not and if so it will be in the future and I know there have been posts I can search for. Just wondering about people's experiences of their first outpatient appt (esp with Dr Menzies-Gow's clinic)?
St Mary's have been great so far, they did listen, read my notes and I really appreciate what they're doing but - maybe because they decided so quickly to refer me - I don't feel like I got to go through everything and the letter to RBH doesn't cover things fully. Not moaning about it particularly, I imagine it's probably not meant to cover everything in minute detail; I just feel like I haven't had the chance to go into things in depth.
So really just wondering if RBH are good about covering all the details and asking about stuff in depth, right from the start? I'm a bit nervous about it as I know some on here have said they were brilliant and really helped but others were not so impressed so not sure how it will be for me, but any info about the first bit, or tips would be helpful.
I'll definitely be keeping an open mind and listening to what they say rather than trying to tell them what I think is the problem, but I've often gone away from previous appts elsewhere feeling like there's been no chance to have a proper discussion about some things and stuff gets glossed over (like the way breathing messes up my sleep), and I'm hoping that this kind of clinic will be more interested in the details.
Damn...yet again I am incapable of a short post. I have such good intentions!
