The NHS are considering the whether they can afford to prescribe my T3 and I am trying hard to look after my husband's health needs. His medication list is as follows:
Levothyroxine-Warfarin-Spironolactone- Bumetanide-Sotalol- Ramapril and Calcichew.
I have spent the last three months driving back and forth to hospital 16 times,including 4 visits to A&E and visiting him every afternoon when he was admitted for 8 days with serious fluid retention during February.The last 3 appointments have entailed him seeing 3 different consultants in outpatients who have each changed his meds................This has all resulted in the fact that his kidneys aren't coping and he now needs to see a kidney specialist.Would you believe it? . My energy reserves have certainly been tapped in to big time,but we do what we do out of love and support. You can imagine how I feel seeing my husband having to absorb all these drugs every day.I certainly question whether the right hand knows what the left hand is doing. When I study his patient leaflets and can see for myself that some drugs affect others do others not see this? At the moment I am not only questioning the cost of his drugs but also the cost to his health and future.
Do I really need my T3 ?
