This morning saw my Rheumatologist well a new one who is taking over some of ( previous Rheumy)his patients as he now only works 2 days a week as he is more involved with the research side now.
I like him he listened he explained things well. Upshot my Biologic is working a treat but he noticed my right wrist and fingers are showing joint and ligament thickening. I was referred to a hand clinic in September by a clinic nurse ( not my one) seems to have been lost in the ether so he is referring me himself. It looks like I’m going to need a steroid injection into the wrist and start wearing a splint 🥺and there’s a problem with my middle finger. He couldn’t believe that I’m still waiting for my orthotics. He made a phone call and low and behold my orthotics arrived and were fitted. 🤗🤗. He heard me cough and said when did that start , last night said I had a chest infection so no elerzi and methotrexate this week ( not what I want to hear) he’s not happy that my Gp is not issuing methotrexate injections on prescription said it was too time consuming to keep ringing up and posting out prescriptions 👍Then he said as I had an early menopause (36) he couldn’t believe I hadn’t had a bone density scan so that’s happening as well. The man is a saint 😇 did I also mention he young and rather easy on the eye 😜 . So happy with appointment and new Rheumy.. he’s a keeper
