So I told you I had my yearly apt with Rheumy who had never been that interested over the 13yrs in my Lupus. Her nose was out of joint so told me to choose Manchester or her? If I wanted to stay ring her secretary to make next years apt? Which I did some weeks later after much thought and no wish to burn bridges.
Tomorrow I have apt to see specialist Lupus nurse at Manchester to compare their care to present, (lack) except I do get four weekly blood tests which are so important, yeah?
Just checking, rang appointments, just to check apt was made for next year? Discharged. Yep. Discharged off her service.
FURIOUS. Told lovely intelligent apt clerk the tale, her response, go to Manchester! Ha! Anyway, on my behalf she rang secretary, again, and SHE said she would make the apt for next year. Hm. Why not then? She was speaking to appointments! I think she will re check and not do it, which reconfirms everything.
I think this confirms the low opinion I had of this rheumy whose only question, every year was, "any rashes?"
To think she has sent me out with no Rheumy cover! Unprofessional to say the least.
I don't doubt my lovely new GP has a report from Rheumy, begin of July saying she has dischaged me, but it hasn't come up. But bin me off with Lupus???
Anyway, I do hope the nurse tomorrow welcomes me to their full service with regular blood tests. My lovely hubby says he doesn't mind the two hour round trip once a month to do bloods. Bless him.
Now in the morning I have my regular blood test, here. I wonder if I will be turned away from the door? They are good girls, they may do this one for me, ooops sorry, we forgot! Need it for Gastro apt Friday.
So its not over... YET.
Will let you know how tomorrow goes guys.
Dont suppose I can slap a Lupus health warning on my ex Rheumy on here to warn others in St Helens to avoid her? Nah, thought not. Pity. Just my opinion you understand!!!
Hope you are all out of this hot sun tody
