An Appointment With Infectious Disease Specialist
I have an appointment with an Infectious Disease Specialist. I’ve had my results for over a year now and I’ve often wondered about visiting my doctor and showing him what I’d found out about my health. I had a lot of pent-up anger inside of me because of the way I’d been treated visiting doctors and being portrayed as delusional, paranoid etc. I felt by visiting my doctor it was perhaps a way of releasing this pent-up anger. To cut a long story short, when I plucked up the courage to go, he looked at my results, in awe I have to say, and without hesitation said words to the effect, “well, then it’s a trip to Infectious Disease for you". My doctor seemed to be very impressed indeed with my micrographs and notes. He couldn’t stop looking at them. He made a comment - ‘high powered micrographs’. He had no hesitation in making a referral to Infectious Disease. That came across loud and clear. I couldn’t believe it.
I know of a couple of people who have visited parasitologists and have had negative results. This has concerned me about going to Infectious Disease Specialist but what I have for back-up is my own results through RHR which is great because without them I don’t think I would have been referred. It will be hard for Infectious Disease Specialist to refute. I’m intrigued as to what tests of their own they might do and what they come up with. It will be interesting.
I have to say, it is only since I’ve produced my own results/notes I had through RHR that my doctor has, in my opinion, ’seen the light’ and offered to refer me.
I have no idea what the appointment will entail. What tests will be done, if any. But what I’m sure of, I’ll explain what the last 5 3/4 years has been like for me.
I am not worried about my visit to ID Specialist. I am slightly concerned about the treatment they may offer me. I am receiving treatment already and I’m happy with my progress. Yes, there are days where I have two steps forward and one step back but I’m making more steps forward than I am making back. Progress can be slow, but it’s progress all the same.
I am working with an excellent practitioner who is treating me and I’m very happy with how things are going. Yes it’s slow but I knew that from the beginning. My case isn’t an easy case to deal with and there have been hurdles along the way. I’ve recently had to have my treatment adjusted.
I’ve tried certain drug treatments in the past and it didn’t work (previous to the practitioner I’m working with now). This is what concerns me entirely with regards to ID Specialist offering this to me. It’s a huge concern. It’s not what I want, at all.
I’ll make a post after my appointment and update you. I’m not sure how long I’ll have to wait for my results, but I don’t think I’ll know anything on the day of the appointment. That I’m sure of. I think it will be interesting all the same.
