He went to GP yesterday - initially student/trainee was only one in room as GP in meeting - asked lots of questions re condition and meds and wy not on AA?
OH replied that he wasn't going to take a drug with potentially evil side effects if there were no indications of need. GPthen cme in and she's happy withe bone situation as dexascan showed bones OK.
However I'm not sure re her recommendation re rate of reducing pred. He's currently on 20mg pd ad she said to reduce by 2.5 mg every 2 - 4 weeks until 10mg then have a review. He said that when he asked re prescription for 1mg tabs later on that he was told not available (hmm - there are numeerous suppliers UK)
Rheumatologist who asssessed him during 3days hospital in Jume unfortunately had climbing accident and died - he hasn't had a follow-up from Rheumatology.
He has spent this morning up and down a ladder sorting out a new, faulty electric light outside the place where he keeps his tractors and motorbikes.
