    Whenever I go for a general check-up with my haemotologist, I expect the following:

    I arrive and check-in

    Get weighed
    Get measured
    Give a urine sample
    Have a blood test

    Once the urine sample and blood test are analysed, I would go and speak to my consultant.
    The conversation lasts around 20 minutes and it ends with her prescribing me medicine that I may have run out of.

    This takes around 1-2 hours from start to finish. It’s pretty monotonous but hey, it’s necessary.

    What is your experience like?

    Tito,

    My appointments are not that lengthy. Maybe 30 minutes. I am not asked for an urine sample. I do get blood labs before I go since I take Hydroxyurea for SCD to build red blood cells. I tell my nurse what my weight is on the scale I use at home. Prescriptions are updated at least each 6 months.

    Ahh that sounds way more convenient!

    In the UK we can only get 3 months worth of Hydroxyurea at a time.
