Reading all the comments re unfriendly doctors etc. I am sorry for you all. I have nothing but gratitude for treatments received over the past years. I have under active thyroid (40 years) Levothyroxine prescribed. Lymphodemia 4 years , surgical stockings , glaucoma , eye drops . Asthma , inhalers. Reflux trouble, given emozol, Osteoporosis (8 years) accrete tabs, B12 injections and ferrous tabs for anaemia, etc. Plus of course the dreaded AA but no on e knew the side effects when I was prescribed it 9 years ago . Result 2 broken femurs and broken vertebrae. Action taken, operations on femurs and Teriparatide injections . I am in pain but cannot fault the treatments given. I am 84. Thanks NHS for all this at no cost to me.
