Just want to share with you all the great result I had at my latest haematology appointment. My platelet unit was 356 - the best it's been in a long long time! I saw a different haematologist who asked if I would like to be transferred to the remote clinic, whereby I just go for a blood test and then the consultant looks at the results at the next clinic, but I don't have to be there! After waiting 3 hours for my appointment that day you can imagine my excitement at the prospect of not having to do it again in 3 months time! I have a number for the specialist clinical nurse, should I have any concerns, but otherwise I will only have to see the consultant if my counts change dramatically. I have heard of this type of clinic at other hospitals but didn't know that my hospital did it. If feels like I have been set free after 4 long years.
Hope you are all managing to keep well my friends. Happy Christmas to you all. Karen xx
