Hi everyone, well off to the rheumy tomorrow and have a plan in my mind for the way forward ... I think!!
I believe he will want to start me off on dmards, probably mtx, but as we will be going away mid August I don't wont to ruin my holiday feeling ill, I did post about this a week or so ago. So thought I would ask if I could have an intra muscular steroid injection to get me over the holiday period and start the mtx at the beginning of September when the children have returned to school and I can feel ill in peace!! Hopefully I will be fine on the mtx but like to plan ahead.
So, I've never had one of these injections before and don't know how long it might last. We are away on the 11 Aug and may go away for a few days at he end of Aug. If he agrees and gives this to me tomorrow, will it last that long?? Would it be worth hanging on a week or 2 and then could my GP give me the injection?
I'm sure the rheumy will advise on this tomorrow, but there's nothing better than feedback from you guys. Thanks everyone and I'm glad it's a bit cooler. Rx
