Patient voices Living alone with MDS
Blog update treatment of infection. Further to my previous update regarding a negative response from my medical practice. The practice manager booked an extended appointment with my GP so I could express my concerns. I attended ready to do battle, my GP said he had had time to look at my notes and realised my concern( I knew well he hadn't referred to them before) and suggested that it would be a good idea if he prescribed a reserve supply of antibiotics in case of my sinus infection reoccurrence. It was my intention to request this but he beat me to it. When I mentioned my previous gps catalogue of errors failing to refer me for further tests and dismissing another gps warning that I had a bone marrow problem he told me he would be circulating details of warning signs of MDS to the other doctors in the practice. I thought he would have done that previously as when I first registered with him as I gave him the paper Bloodwise asked me to give to my GP for information of the signs to look out for. All of us should be aware that our GP is not infallible and if you have doubts get a second opinion!!
