The long awaited appointment with my consultant arrived today to discuss Anti TNF treatment. I've done all my reading up and was ready for a good chat about options, as it was I did not need to be so prepared. I have been referred for my assessment (which means no Kenolog injections for the foreseeable future - Consultant said it would mask what was going on and I need to be as bad as possible at my assessment!) but the independant nurse that does the assessments is apparently off sick at the moment so it could be a couple of months before I get an appointment - more waiting!
I have had to come off diclofenac (sp?) completely at the moment as I have had a month of tummy problems. I wrote a few weeks ago that I had had some pains and sickness, well it kicked off again two weeks ago but much worse this time. I will not go into detail but it was horrid! Went to see my wonderful GP and she said that it would seem as though I have had some stomach damage (thanks diclofenac!) as there was a lot of blood when I was sick.
.....quick break from writing whilst I stop my son putting E45 and a nappy on his teddy!!!!....
I have a scan to check my gall bladder next week (I have some pain just under my rib where it is) to rule out gall bladder inflammation and then if it's not that I'll have an appointment made to see what's going on with my stomach. In the mean time I'm living off not much at all really - just don't fancy anything other than the food stuffs that I should not have, I am soooo bored of soup!
Anyway that's off my chest now so back to rescuing the teddies as poor rabbit is now having E45 rubbed all over him!!! Thank goodness for my boys they keep me smiling
