Saw my osteo today. We went through the usual "are you still taking the......" and I told him I stopped the Bextra because it was having absolutely no effect on me except to further drain my wallet, so he gave me a script for something called cataflam, which I believe is generic for volteren (not sure how it's spelled). Anyone ever taken this?? He also gave me copies of the blood work I've had done in the last few months to take with me to the rheumy Monday. It so happens that one of his nurses goes to this same rheumy for her RA; she told me to expect Monday's visit to take a while, that the rheumy spends a lot of time with her patients. Guess I'll find out on Monday. He seems willing to continue treating me for everything he's diagnosed me with, his comment about my rheumy appointment was that he will be very interested to hear what she has to say about all my joint pains, since I've tested negative for everything so far.
