Following my rheumatologist appointment yesterday, at Manchester
Royal Infirmary, the dr gave me the results of several tests done over the last 3 months.
A recent ultrasound scan shows a nodule on my thyroid, x-rays confirm osteoarthritis in both hands and a bone scan confirms early stages of osteoporosis.
It was really a lot to take in at one very short appointment. The Dr is arranging referral to a thyroid specialist and is writing to my GP to start meds for for osteoporosis.
He recommends wax treatment for my hands and has taken lots of blood to test my liver complement and vitimin D levels.
He did say it is lucky my APS and Lupus is quiet at the moment !!
Can anybody give me advice on things I can do going forward?
