A TRIP TO THE DOCTOR TODAY –

Had an appointment today with Doc Susan.

What happened;

The blood pressure readings I`ve done three days last week was fine.
My bloodwork and urine was perfect.

My cholesterol is a little high – it is genetic, so I will change my diet for three months.
Then new blood tests and if that doesn`t work out we will have a talk to see if I need medication.

As for the coughing – x-rays and blood work was fine.

Susan went over my medication, as she wrote out new prescriptions, and found that my blood reassure medication can cause coughing.
She changed it, and I have to report in a couple of months. If I still cough then, I will go to the lung medication unit for tests.

I also got some liquid crème for the sores I have on my scalp, as the one I have for my neck, back and face, doesn`t apply to hair.

I got almost 30 minutes, and both Mum and I were more than happy when we left.

That's good news, sweetie! Thinking about it, my mum also got her blood pressure medication changed because the first one caused coughing, about a year or two ago. I hope this fixes your cough. At least you know there is nothing overtly nasty behind it!

I'm so, so glad that you have a good doctor who listens to you. My mum's best friend is currently severely ill in hospital because the doctor couldn't be bothered to read her notes or assess her properly. We are hoping she makes a full recovery but all her problems started when the doctor prescribed tablets she shouldn't have been given. Doctors are so important and we trust them so much, having a good one is worth the world. I'm so glad you have Susan now, she sounds like she truly cares about you. *big hugs*

It is – I still cough a little but that is mostly in the morning where it sound a little slimy – I have an appointment on Thursday – so I will talk with her about that and the nervedamage in my left foot. Susan is so great, she listens to me and actually believe what I tell her.
I really hope that your Mum`s friend is doing better by now. “hugs to her “ It is horrible when doctors just ignore their patients, and it can turn out so bad.
Big hugs to you and your Mum
