Prayer request for me

I am so frustrated I could cry. My Rheumy took me off the Enbrel and sent me to see another Rheumy. His plans for me were to start the Methotrexate ASAP after my visit to the second Rheumy. He actually told me to call the next day...and he would call in my prescription so I could start it right away. So I held up my part of the deal. I stopped the Enbrel nearly two months ago. I have struggled and pushed through. Monday I saw the second Rheumy who said she agrees with him, to start the Methotrexate. I called and left him a message yesterday and played phone tag all day. This morning I get a call from his office that he didnt get anything from the second Rheumy that says I actually saw her and he doesnt feel comfortable putting me on Methotrexate at this time. You are kidding me, right? Seriously?!? It was HIS idea....I didnt WANT to come off the Enbrel. I told the woman who called to to tell him that I do NOT understand and that he needs to look back on his notes. This was all HIS idea. She took the second Rheumy's phone number so she could call and verify that I actually went up there on monday. Hmmph.

I have an appointment with him June 9th. There are no earlier appointments. So I need some prayers sent my way. Prayers that he will get his head out of his you-know-what and read my file. Then maybe he will see this was his plan, not mine and he will call the meds in for me. This medicine takes up to 6 weeks to feel improvements. I dont want to wait another month to start it, I have already been without meds for nearly two months.

And Thanks for everyone who sees this and prays for me. I know that God will take of me...and I will trust that

I'm so sorry. I would not just wait until June. I would demand for the Dr. to call me & I would call daily until this is resolved.

You cannot sit in pain because this man isn't paying attention. {{{hugs}}}

Oh man, that's awful and how frustrating! I feel for you. There's nothing worse than getting a run-around, especially when the Dr. was the one who put you on the goose chase in the first place. Good luck!

Oh jeeze! that so stinks that your doctor is being a butthead. I hate it when doctors are like that. It happens to my grandfather every now and then with his primary and cardiologist. Totally sucks :(

I am so sorry that this has happened. I run into these issues all the time with Philip's medical issues and it is never easy of fun.
I am praying that they clear this up fast and start to take care of what you NEED.

Amy said...

Prayers being said that he remembers quickly what he is supposed to do! {{{{HUGS!}}}}
