Spontaneous Referral!

Just had to share this as slightly excited - my Rhuematologist has spontaneously asked if I would like her to arrange for me to be seen by Dr David D'Cruz!! It may have something to do with the fact that I had just emailed her to say that I want to inject Heparin if my INR goes below 2.5 rather than below 2, and she is worried I am risking a bleed, but whatever precipitated it, I have obviously written back to say yes thank you very much. That's just saved me a few hundred quid which it would have cost to see him privately, as I was seriously considering doing this.

Well done and also I guess unusual!

I have done the same last week. My Hematologist changed my 1.8 of INR to 2.5 before I had to take a Fragminshot. Also changed my therapeutic range from 2.5 - 3.5 to 3.0 - 3.5 in INR. I had asked her for that.

Good Luck and stay well! from Kerstin in Stockholm
