Private Hospital Appointment ? i have been asking for advice about my daughter who has recently been diagnosed with Thyroid failure. Her Dr seems on the ball he rang her 2 days after a blood test to ask her to go in and get a prescription. Her TSH was abve 100 and T4 only 4( She is 23) She has been put on 50 mcu of thyroxine and is going back in 10 days for another blood test and he is testing for antibodies as i have hashimotos and also my sister. She has quite a noticable swelling in her neck. The Dr wants her to see an Endo, but said it would probably not be until July,but said he would speak to the hospital and manage her treatment in the meantime. I obviously am panicking as she is so poorly and not able to work.She lives in Bristol and im wondering if i paid for her to see endo more quickly would that make it difficult for her to be on the NHS in the future as I know this is a life long condition!,Should she ask her Dr.I know i can get her an appointment with Spire Health within the week or can you rec a good endo in Bristol.Thanks once again for your help Val
