The First Consultation

I went with my parents to meet my specialist doctor at University College Hospital. Really, I was expecting to get the results from my previous scans however they weren't quite ready yet - the medical team meet on Thursdays to discuss these kinds of thing - and so another appointment has been made for a week's time.

Hello Dr Pule!
My consultant haematologist is called Dr Pule and he is from Malta. That's not important at all, but really that's all that came from this appointment. It was more of a 'meet and greet' than anything but he seems like a decent bloke. Let's hope he's a decent doctor too.

Then I met my senior nurse. Apparently they're the real stars of the show who really do everything. Better stay on her good side and bring her cake from time to time.

Finally, as expected, they wanted to rob some blood. I say some blood. LOTS of blood. But that's fine. I was explained that they want to create a 'before' profile for comparison later. Well, that's that! Next step - freezing my little men. Chemotherapy can lead to fertility issues. Read at your own risk.
