Today, Newark…next month, Mansfield…!!!

June 23, 2008
This morning…appointment with the specialist at Newark Hospital.  He asked if I had been having regular blood tests, as the only results he’d got were from November…my doctor had not passed them on…so how can he assess and treat me if he isn’t kept up to date?  
So, after only just having one blood test at Lincoln hospital, just over a week ago, I had to see ‘the vampire’ again for another.  Anyway, my doctor is not going to be treating me for this thyroid prob any more, and I am to see the specialist at his own clinic at Kings Mill (no jokes about Hovis or Warburtons, please…oh, sod it! go ahead…!!!), Mansfield.  Mansfield?!!  Like, that might as well be the other side of the world!!
Basically, Dr Thompson took one look at the list of medication I’m currently taking and scribbled some out…hooray!!  He said that this treatment was the latest thing…in the stone-age!…but things have moved on since then!  Which just goes to show that Lincoln is STILL twenty years behind the times!!!
To cut a long story short…he wants latest blood results…scrap treatment I’m on at the mo…start again…
I will let you know how I’m feeling, now I’ve put the Propranolol away, as I think that most of the nasty side effects are caused by this drug…breathlessness, muscle weakness and tiredness, poor circulation, visual disturbance, and pins-and-needles.
All the leaflets say…’If you suffer any of these side-effects, let your doctor know.’  So I did, several times.  Did they take any notice?  Guess!
