A "fun" month ahead.

(1/2) > >>

mitch777:
February looks to be full of fun with six different doctors appointments.

Psychiatrist-Update her on everything including how I am dealing with Amitriptyline.
(also want to ask her if Methylphenidate might help relieve some of the extra brain fog issues due to the antidepressant)

ID doc-Find out the last blood test results and get a new prescription to get me off of Atripla. (i think it will be Isentress/Truvada)
Find out what to do about my high red blood cell count.
(maybe get a pint of blood sucked out)
Discuss other old issues and hope that there won't be any new ones.

Endocrinologist-First visit to find out more about my odd testosterone behavior.

Neurologist-Catch up on the lack of progress about my daily chronic headaches.
(i've almost given up on a solution... at least from him)

PCP-Discuss the possibility of seeing a ENT doc to find out if a deviated septum correction might, just might, help with the headaches.

Neuropsychiatrist-Taking a neuropsychological test. Ugh!
From what I read, it can take 2-6 hours.
Hope it will better document some of my memory and cognitive problems.
(SSDI seems to need documentation beyond belief, so i intend to pile it on)
(my attorney is sending me to her, not SSDI)

It has gotten to the point of starting a separate file folder to put info and questions in for each doctor so that I don't forget.

See my dentist and eye doc in March.

Hope my GI doc doesn't feel too left out of the party. ;D

Maybe we should just take a nice long vacation and cancel all of these appointments? :)

Hey Mitch, yep they LOVE paper-work, get as much documentation as you can, also make copies and take lots of notes, I kid you not, you'll need all of them, and then some too  ;)

Buckmark:
Geez, Mitchypoo, that's quite a litany of appointments.  Hope you get some good results / answers.

Are you trying to give Miss P a run for the money on med appointments?   ;)

Mitchell would need to sprinkle that month with twice weekly physical therapy to rise to my level. She'd never make it.

I hope they at least throw in a nice prostate exam for your enjoyment.   ;D
