So, I was started on a three month trial of T4/T3 (150/20 split) in February. As my TSH was suppressed after 8 weeks my Endo said I should 'leave things as they are for the time being and we'll have another look in a month'. I moved areas in April and my new GP referred me to a new Endo with an appointment on 20th June. I've been preparing myself for the past couple of weeks (as you do), only to get a telephone call this afternoon to tell me that the appointment has been cancelled as the Consultant has left and his locum has also left. She said that a new appointment would be made when another locum could be found. I asked if she could put a note on my file that I need to see someone with an interest in thyroid and she said "oh, so you're not a renal patient then?". Don't the GPs tell them what our problem is when they refer us? I had this problem with my last Endo - he was a 'Consultant Diabetologist' on his letters. Meanwhile I'm left, getting more and more poorly, with more and more symptoms returning... I'm just so terribly disappointed. There! Didn't really turn into a rant after all! I think I'm just too tired! K. P.S. Oooooh, very cleverly, I've somehow managed to attach a photograph to this post - I have no notion how I did that, and I've pressed 'remove' in editing, to no avail. Sorry, lol! K.
