Hi ladies! I've been MIA for a while just getting on with life and back to work! I thought I would pop onto the forum to see how everyone is going and I'm so thrilled to see all this good news!!! BIG congratulations!!! I have just started getting my headspace back to treatment and will start making plans in the next month or so to move on to DE! Am trying to decide to stay with RG or move to another clinic! Arghh, I just don't know!!
Hi Leza, welcome to the thread, just to answer your question re betas on the NHS, the only way they will do it for you is if you have a letter of request from RG. I called my GP and asked to book in for the bloods and she said no so I asked what do I have to do to get it and she said a letter of request! So I emailed Tereza and she emailed one right back and I printed it off and took it to the GP! Then it was no problems! I have had mixed reactions from NHS staff in regards to my treatment abroad, one GP said when I requested a beta blood test 'this is the problem with you all going abroad for treatment, you go there have thentreatment then the NHS is left to pick up the pieces'! I said 'excuse me I think that's a very unfair thing to say to me, I am only asking for a beta blood test and not asking you to pick up pieces after botched treatment'!'Gosh I was furious! After that I decided to only speak with the young female GP who was more understanding!
Sorry I have to keep this one short and sweet as I'm at work!! I will write a better message very soon when I'm at home with no distractions!! This is me getting back to the forums now!! Big warm fuzzy hugs to everyone! Xxx
