A Very Good Consultation In Edinburgh.Mattcass

Hi Guys, Several good things were discussed the Transplant was not one off them did not even get a mention, agreeing for me to go on Sulfasalasine was because the Rheumy Doc told him I was going through a torrid time with my RA and the Hydroxy did not work and because my IPF sisuation had not changed it should not affect me to much, hence all the blood tests every two weeks and i promise to let them know of any side effects that may occur, I am on the full 3000mgs a day and feel a slight difference on the amount of flare ups I normally get. He congratulated me on getting back to work he recalled me saying something in June about it but because i could not walk the length of his room he never gave it a secong thought, His parting sentence was close the door on the way out and i will see you in June. So of we wentfor a nice meal and a pint of Guiness.Matt/Fran
