I take decapeptyl every 3 months and done by the nurse at my GP surgery i also take estradial valerate every day and simvastatin to keep my Cholesterol levels on good order.
So i would say my care level is very good and its a shame to hear other have such a poor level of service.

It was quite a speedy appointment: this one was only a five month wait!
Fortunately, my GP is happy for me to do my blood tests at their surgery (though it's a bit of a lucky dip as to which ones the local path lab actually do...) which I can then email to Iffy, and I take a printed copy down there with me to. They do fax the results to CX, but it's not unknown for the fax to go missing on its long trek from the post room to the recipient's office...
I have only found out lately that my HRT, Which happens to be 7 Progynova 2mg tablets a day = 14 mg a day was way to high. This I only found out as I was getting discharged from CX after having SRS. I have been on this level from back July 2012.
Myself and my GP was told was to keep upping the does in till we got to the right oestradiol levels
All that GIC doc looked at was serum oestradiol levels and not what the does was.
Sadly I was none the wiser, and I was the first Trans person my GP had ever treaded.
On good note I have spoken to iffy and know I am waiting for my 8 week ops opp blood test so we can try and fix this.
