went…GREAT!!! She was VERY thorough. The difference between her and my former rheumy is night & day!!! She is definitely in the right profession. You can tell she became a Dr because she wants to help people. Not for the money or the perks (if there are any for small town Dr’s anymore).
Switching Dr’s was one of THE BEST decisions I have ever made. She ran some blood work ( B-12, Iron, Stored Iron, Myeloma Screen & Inflammatory Marker Chemistry). Weird thing tho…my blood usually pours out, the lab tech had to literally palpitate the vein to help get enough blood into the last 2 tubes. Maybe because I just had surgery???
Talked about reasons to DC or add to the plaquenil. She gave me a steroid shot for my rash too!! Which BTW reared it’s ugly head again after I showered yesterday afternoon. It never went away, just calmed down a bit. But seems every time I shower it flairs up. Hoping it’s a lot better in the morning!!
Well that’s about it for now.
Have a great evening.
