Hi, I have been under the care of an Endo since January last year because the GP suspected I had vitiligo when she examined me. At the initial consultation I was tested for Lupus and RA both of which were ruled out through antibody tests until I was told I had elevated Anti-TPO antibodies that my GP had looked for, but not that I have Hashimoto's (I found out on here instead). I saw the Endo again in May for a more urgent appointment because of the problems gaining weight even though I didn't change my diet and she then thought that I had adrenal insufficiency. The test for that was normal. She put in her letter she copied me into that she was happy that my Free T4 was in the top end of the range thanks to the T4 medication (at the time) but that I had a high TSH. She agreed to continue to follow-up with me as agreed and that I would be waiting on a letter from the endocrinology department. I called the endocrinology department back in August about when I could expect to receive a letter about my follow-up. For my last appointment in May I was sent a letter 3 months in advance about it. The receptionist told me the hospitals don't go by this procedure anymore but my urologist sent me a letter about my follow-up appointment for April and that was six months from the date of the letter!
My endo follow-up is meant to be due in this month sometime and I very much doubt I'll be seen by the end of the year especially since I've received no letter. I don't understand what is going on and I'm now worried they've discharged me because of how much better my results now look and that they now know about them or that I keep going back to my GP about the other problems that are cropping up if not for how tired I feel - and the low energy has been going on for about quite a few years, even before I was diagnosed. Am I wrong in thinking that the endo just doesn't seem bothered anymore? She works part-time and seems to be on holiday whenever I call her department to ask for a callback - so I can understand a slight delay but I feel as though I'm just going to be waiting around forever. I have so many other things to ask and I don't know if I feel up to trusting this consultant if her receptionist keeps saying she'll pass on my messages to her and I get no callback.
