I have my first endo appointment in 2 days - only waited 5 months for this.
I've read back posts and recommendations for this situation here but I'm still anxious. I just dread being told 'to come back in 6 months' and it will all be a waste of time (mine and endo).
OK I have my August scan results, very recent bloods from GP, private bloods I had done in recent months to take with me. Is it best just to hear what he/she has to say first, or do I go in with my paperwork and describe my symptoms? I truly don't know how to get the most benefit from this appointment so desperate for advice.
It has been so long now, but I think I was referred originally because I suggested my weight loss may be due to thyroid problems - and I've had an obvious goitre for years and years and recent scan showed my nultinodule goitre has become substernal, one nodule 3.5 cm (not as large as they can become I understand).
As usual with others here, I do have other problems which are affecting my day to day life. The only place I feel able to voice these is on this forum since I normally don't like to talk about myself, doesn't help with GP's and consultants I know. : (
Not on any meds. Both sisters had autoimmune diseases, one thyroid, the other lupus.
I'd be so grateful for advice of how to cope with my appointment and what to ask, or question. I so wish I felt stronger. j
