I had my assessment yesterday for Etanercept. I think it went well and I met all the criteria. The annoying thing is that although I was assured the one I had done in February would count, the same person told me yesterday it wouldn't. I rang up and pointed out about having them done within a certain time and she told me as long as they weren't closer than 4 weeks apart that was ok. Now I have to wait another month and then she said another month before I got it. I mentioned my swollen painful knee and asked if i could have some fluid drawn off. The first appointment was September but then she tried by calling me a returning patient and a slot came up for this Friday afternoon. I hope they will do it as I can hardly walk today.
