Hi all, had my review today 5 weeks after inj 19. Oedema back again, not a surprise as knew vision had changed again. At last review consultant said we would switch to eylea once nice approved it for brvo (which they did Sept 2016).
So, imagine my shock when Dr today tells me I need a steroid implant! When I asked what about trying eylea she told me regretfully it wasn't approved!
I had to tell her it was......a bit of an uncomfortable moment before she muttered that she seemed to be a bit behind the latest info. Anyway we agreed to try eylea so now I wait for the appt.
This Dr is the one I had to make a formal complaint about 2 years ago. I cannot trust her and have again had to speak to the clinic to ensure she does not review me again.
Was v annoyed when clinic used the phrase "I highly doubt it" after I told them what she had said to me. Apparently she is in charge of the eylea clinics!!! I told them if they were calling me a liar I would cease the conversation immediately to which they apologised and agreed to my request.
So much for trying to reduce stress ha ha.
Had a good sleep this afternoon so feeling better now but what a palaver.
