Good questions, thanks so much!! I was thinking of doing a powerpoint presentation too, jk!
I am going to let him know that I definitely want to work together on getting me healthy and staying that way. I am also going to ask him if he had my two diseases what course of action he would take and which Dr's would he see? Might as well get a 2nd for my Kidney Disease as well.........
I'm in service sales so I am used to changing how I deal with each individual person to make them more comfortable and open, but being firm at the same time. Though who knows, I may end up crying my eyes out and looking like a complete mess.........can I blame it on the pred? at only 10mg, he might not buy it!
I hope I am not let down and he is a complete ass or incompetent.
Yes, a full report will be forthcoming!
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
