Thoracic medicine appointment

I had a great weekend but yeah totally paying for it today, I woke up exhausted and in so much pain.

I woke up about 6 am because I was in so much pain with my hips and knees. So I had breakfast and pain killers and I managed to get back to sleep on the sofa until 11 am.

When I woke up I had just enough time to get showered and dressed, take the pups out and sort myself out ready for my hospital appointment.

It takes an hour on the bus to get to the hospital and a hour back and an hour in there! Two buses there and two buses back.

Hospital appointment went well, sat in a box and did breathing tests and had a chest x-ray. He agrees with me that I need to be given a try of a different immune suppressant, he’s also going to write to my ENT doc to get him to see me regarding my reoccurring sinus infections and he is going to ask about another possible sinus rinse. I told him about my situation with atos and my benefits and he said its disgusting but he’ seeing it all the time. So yeah good appointment and my wind pipe is looking good as well and I see him in 6 months.

Got home, sorted out my med box for the week and sorted out my weekly planner with what bills and appointments I have, so I know where I need to be in the next fortnight.

I wanted to quickly hop on here to write about my appointment before I go and again and totally forget what he said lol!

It was a good appointment and I am so glad he’s totally on my side with everything I said to him, which is great and makes life so much easier when I don’t have to battle against them, because that makes it so stressful. He actually listens to what I say and he responds to what I say and sadly out of all the doctors I’ve seen in my lifetime that’s a very rare thing.

Anyway I’m feeling happy and content still, just tired and achy. I gotta get going to group now 🙂

Peace out
