An update for all those who so kindly answered my first post, having recently been diagnosed with AMD I was concerned there was no mention of follow up appointment.

I have just received a letter from doctor at eye clinic to say that after consultation with renal consultant ,I have an appointment on 20th March for further test with a view to treatment. I am very relieved about this as I felt I had just been abandoned. Thank you for all your support, I will keep in touch.

That's good news Lizjim, it's not too long to wait and hopefully you'll get some answers. I have dry amd in both eyes early stages. I also have an appointment with eye clinic in March. I wish you well on your journey. Take care.xx

Always ask about follow up and what to do if you encounter a problem in the future. Most clinics will tell you to ring them if you are concerned but sometimes they forget to tell you.

At my last appointment when I was diagnosed I was too shocked to ask anything. I am now more prepared and have written a list of questions .Thank you for your support .

Having a list is an excellent idea. It is also worth having someone with you to remember all the answers especially when technical terms are used.

Delighted for you Lizjim and Good Luck for the future.
