So the GP relented, just. My DS now has 20 injections but, wait for it, cannot use them until he gets a blood test next week to check platelets, then when the GP has looked, bearing in mind the GP only works part time, he can use them, but after 5 days he must do another blood test so GP can check platelets, and then do it all again after 10 days.
So my DS works in another city, but do GPs care about inconvenience? Prof Hughes has not requested this and has only recently done a full compliment of bloods at the Lupus Centre.
I have had a supply of fragmin to use for 9 years and never been told to do this.
And what bothers me at the end of the trial there is no provision for anything. But if warfarin is the way forward another fight will ensue I'm sure. Especially as my DS will want to self test.
