How did your appt go? Is there another iron infusion in your future?

I'm sure you've already thought of this, but just in case you haven't...I was wondering if you request copies of your labs and other test results. Maybe all these specialists wouldn't do repeat testing if you were able to give them fairly recent copies of what you've had done already.

I feel really fortunate to have almost all of my docs working within the same system--all my info is at their fingertips. It would really bite to have to start all over every time I got referred to a specialist. I'm sure it's getting to be very expensive for you. :(

Also--and I know this is hard on many levels--have you considered applying for social security disability benefits? I've been granted them on a permanent basis. It's not a lot of money, but it does come with Medicare which at this point I think is better than many insurance plans. I don't know where you are in your nursing career or if it is becoming difficult for you to do your job....Just something to think about if things become overwhelming for you, which I hope will never be the case.
