I started Mtx 3 weeks ago and was told to have blood tests every two weeks. So far I've had one at by GPs surgery. They told me that the results wouldn't come back to them as the blood test request form was supplied by the Rheumy, and couldn't tell me who writes up the results in the monitoring booklet. They suggested that I ask the GPs reception to print me off the results from some database, but that means I'll be the only one looking at them until I see the Rheumy again at the end of July. What's the point of fortnightly blood tests if the Rheumy doesn't see the results for 3 months and no-one else looks at them? What does everyone else do?
