Had my endo appointment yesterday that I'd been soooo looking forward to! Went off with high hopes but despite Dr Trainer and Dr Younis being the named doctors on the notice board at the clinic, and just to make sure asking the nurse and being reassured I'd see one of those two, I went into the room and was met with a different endo. I didn't have the heart to say i didn't want to see him as what do I know .... he might've been fantastic? Anyway, he wasn't! He was a lovely guy but I lost all hope when I heard him patiently explaing to me that he didn't think it was a problem to only test TSH levels and said taking t3 with t4 didn't make any difference. At this point I was too overwhelmed at missing my chance with either of the other two that when he asked me if I had any questions I was too emotional to speak and left as quickly as i could before i broke down in front of him. I hate myself now for not speaking up but I was incapable at this point - feel tearful now just writing this! Well he is going to call me back in a few weeks and do some tests, but if he doesn't listen to the fact that I've felt so much worse since being dropped from 175mcgs to 100mcgs of levo per day and that I'm Vit D deficient (12.8) and my GP wasn't going to treat me for it until I insisted, then I don't hold out much faith in anything else. I'm gutted!
