Well got my rheumatologist appointment today for the 8th march at chapel allerton hospital in Leeds
Must say I'm
Or looking forward to it as hate having blood tests done but I suppose I'll get all the info while I'm there
You will be in good hands, I attended Chapel Allerton until 4 month ago, and could not fault there expertise, I live in east Kent 😁. I have seen both Dr Mackie and Dr Marzo-Ortega who are both wonderful. Good luck
Thank you xxx
One of the girls on here goes there, she likes it, good luck!
Hi, I am at Chapel Allerton too, there on 3rd March. I am quite new to this hospital after asking to be transferred from York. I haven't had anything that controls my pain and flares yet but after 3 years I really hope they can help. Let us all know how you get on? You never know, if we're there the same day a coffee and naughty cake may be had! Good luck. Lesley
Hi Lesley my appointment is on the 8th march 😲but we could always meet up for a coffee ☕️ I live in farsley near pudsey where are u ??? It's my first time here at chapel allerton to see a rheumatologist but I've been.before in agony with hand and knees it's only took 20 years for me to be referred and then I had to change gp surgery for that to happen xx
This disease is just a nightmare, I live in York but my mum and son live in Pudsey (I used to live there too) so I know the area well. I would love the chance to meet up with someone in the same boat. I don't know anyone with this so to share a chat would be great. Are you free in the afternoon of Saturday the 11th? We could meet in Farsley or Pudsey as I will be going to visit my mum afterwards anyway. Take care, have a lovely weekend and I hope to meet up soon? Lesley (email@example.com)
Would be lovely 😊 to meet up Lesley as I don't talk to anyone about this either only gp or consultants do u mean the 11th of this month??? I'm free Hun if u want to meet up would be great to meet and chat 💭 at least we know we're in the same. Boat 🚣 x here's my email firstname.lastname@example.org xx
Also the consultant I saw at st James asked me if I had been on methotrexate and I said no I've not been any dmards so far they might think differently at chapel allerton what do u think 💭 hun the consultant at st James said mine is sero neg inflammatory arthritis I get confused 🤷♀️ with all these ???? Don't u ?? Why are u changing hospital if u don't mind me asking??? I love York by the way my sister used to live there in wilberfoss she now lives in Spain 🇪🇸 x
Hello Dee, I hope you get all the answers too, but please make sure you have a written list of all the questions you want answers to and tick them off one by one. Only leave if you have talked about everything you have written down. The doctors will appreciate that you have thought about the appointment and you are actively involved. All the very best.
Thank u I just want to be pain free 😲🤕x
