My husband has an autoimmune disease called Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome and we’ve been having issues with his PCP lately. She isn’t as available as we need her to be and she’s really wishy washy, plus the staff are rude and it’s hard to get a referral…and the office is in downtown Detroit.
Since the break in of my husband’s truck, he’s basically been afraid to drive and park downtown…not all of Detroit is bad, but it has a bad rep. Anyway, I didn’t know this really, until recently…so we decided to move his doctors all back to the more local (to us anyway) hospital.
He was originally at this hospital, but there were better specialists at the hospital downtown, so we switched him…well honestly, there’s not much more they can do for him at this point but treat symptoms as they come up, so we’re switching him back to the local hospital.
His appt with the new PCP is tomorrow. He needs either a new script for his Lovenox shots, or to be put back on Coumadin. One or the other.
I wish i could go with him, but he needs to do these things alone. Hopefully it goes well and we don’t have too many issues. We’re pretty educated on the disease and treatments and that’s not always the best thing.
I will update on how the appt went!
