I must say i couldn't of ask for anything more from my rheumy, He was so friendly and explained everything to me, He has comfirmed that i have RA and today i have been given a steriod injection WEEP PEE, I will be given a steriod injection everymonth for 3 month only to give time for the Methothotrexate to kick in.
He also took Xrays of my hands, feet and chest, I had four lots of blood taken And my results will be sent to my GP with my xrays within a week, so i have booked my appointment for Thursday 22nd.
He has prescribed a weekly dose of 15mg a week of Methotrexate and also Folic Acid to be taken once a week two days after takening the Methotrexate.
He has also prescribed Hydroxychloroquine 200mg to be taken once a day,
I will be starting the meds when i see my GP next week depending on the results of my xrays and bloods.
He will also be sending all my results to me by post, with a follow up appointment within the next month, He also gave me alot of information to bring home with me on any side affects etc, I spoke to him about work and he said YOU WILL BE FINE, GO AND ENJOY YOURSELF, After all this suffering over the last five months, I intend to do just that............ The steriod injection should kick in in a couple of days.......
SO HUSBAND ROGER GET YOUR CREDIT CARDS OUT...........
Hope you are all well as can be, And thankyou all again for being there and giving me great advice and helping me to stay possitive, I could'nt of done it without you all.
HUGS AND KISSES xxxxx
