I thought I had more time for this, as my original appointment was not until September. Luckily there was a cancellation and I will be going at the end of the month. The only problem with that is the fact that I need either an ND or MD here who is willing to work with my doctor in the US….not an easy feat I tell you. My family doctor is clearly not an option…so my search continues today.
I need this doctor to be willing to:
-Write prescriptions that have to be re written by a Canadian doctor in order to fill in Canada.
-Requisition monthly blood tests to monitor my system
-Supply my US doctor with the blood test results via email
-Communicate with my US doctor to work together to provide the right treatment course
Now, you would think this would be a piece of cake. Think again. Most doctors hear “lyme” and don’t even listen to another word you say after the fact. So I have an appointment with an MD today for a 15 minute consult to see if she might be willing to be this person for me. I still have a lot of testing that needs to be completed prior to my appointment.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
Oh and a special thank you to my Mom who is actually the one who is helping me with most of this paperwork and searching, seeing I am so unwell and most of the time I just want to give up! Support from family and loved ones is HUGE! ❤
