I received a letter from the hospital Friday. The letter stated that the doctor had tried to call me but couldn’t reach me. Well, I was in a meeting during that time so didn’t notice his call, besides, he had promised to call me one of the two days after my appointment 1,5 week ago at which time I made sure to have my mobile not on mute even at work. Obviously I don’t expect a call a WEEK after!
They had discussed my case at the “doctor’s conference” and clearly the other doctors did not agree with his decision. Now they want me to take my Simponi shot every third week instead of once a month. Not sure for how long because he didn’t specify that. Together with almost double the amount of cortisone pills each day maybe this will do the trick…
I wish I would have more positive thoughts about the fact that they have change the prescriptions in order to get rid of the eye issues but for some reason I’m not convinced yet.
On Tuesday I’m going on vacation! A friend and I will be traveling to Fuerteventura (one of the Canary Islands) for a week. I’m hoping the warm weather will be one part of getting back on track. It’s a training week at a sport hotel and when we booked it almost 5 months ago I expected to have exercised a lot before the trip so I could attend many of the classes. At this point I’m just happy if I can attend a few without major issues to my joints. My hip is still bothering me so we’ll see how it goes. At least I’m going to enjoy being in a sunny and warm climate. No “must-do’s” at all, just relax and enjoy life! Can’t wait!
