Posted about a month ago that my TSH level had shot up over the last few months to almost 40 at last bloods on Tuesday. My endo had cancelled appointment for just after New Years as she was on holiday, so GP asked for me to contact her and GP would also try to get me urgent appointment...
Well, GP left a message and even wrote to her saying she was concerned about the way my TSH had become even though I take 250mcg thyroxine and I have been diagnosed for 15years. She also was concerned that I had gained almost 2stone, I do have LUPUS too, so said this and joint pains could be attributed to that... Seen Rheumy on Tuesday and she too was concerned about the dosage and TSH, so asked me to chase appointment.
I have now spent my second day, flitting calls between hospital and GP's to be told she thought that the GP could manage this and that to take meds in a morning with no vitamins or supplements or other tablets... And that not to increase Thyroxine, so therefore didn't need to see me! Outraged. I certainly am... But I know for a fact she didn't even look at my file from the previous appointment because my gastro had it from recent endoscopy and then it had gone off to my rhemuy appointment. How can this woman play god with my life when she hasn't even looked at my notes, just advised a secretary to tell me the above. To be fair the secretary said she doesn't have her own secretary ....which makes me think is she of any good?
Appointment with GP tomorrow to get this sorted...and ask to be referred to another Endo me thinks!
Sorry for the long post and rant...but just feeling rather annoyed! (My NHS trust were voted one of the worst)
