I just thought I'd run this past you, I had every imaginable blood test run last week the usual monthly liver, FBC ESR CRP etc plus a good few extra, as I had been feeling quite overwhelmed with tiredness.
Well, ring ring, your bloods are back, Well? All perfect ESR 11!!!!! (Crp?) Apparently means 'I AM NORMAL'
So I am making a list for my RA Consultant who I am seeing next Monday afternoon. Am I cured? In remission? what? I want to know as I have heard the Humira can just stop working. I know she won't give me any guarantees. I want to ask about what my DAS score was? I want to know was my RA very agressive ? (I know it was very sudden & harsh) and why she suggested the Humira so early? Mainly I want to know what was it that got me this expensive treatment.
If anyone else wants to suggest questions I could ask, let me know. I always go through the list at the end of my visit.
In the afternoon I am going to see ortho consult who specialises in feet surgery, according to RA Consultant, he is young and is well up on the best approaches to feet / ankle surgery and he is interested in the patient (her words - must be some of her fellow collegues are not interested in the patient!) Oh please let him be able to rebalance my ankle fix my bunion & straighten my toes!
Hav'nt we all got very good at asserting ourselves? The nodding dog (bitch) is a thing of the past! Woo Hoo!!!
