Hi,I have a doctor who is very easy to talk to about everything, including his own family, his holidays etc. However, I can't seem to get a straight answer from him about my illness. He rang me tonight to tell me that I'll need another blood transfusion next week and that my white cell count is very low, bordering on critical. He told me to monitor my temperature and to be aware of feeling unwell. I asked him if it was alright for me to go to work.( I work in a hospital with infectious patients ). He wouldn't answer my question. He just repeated that my cell count was becoming problematical and that I should be careful. I have asked him other questions on other ocassions and I feel as if I have been given the brush off. I don't know if he is trying to withhold information so that I don't worry or whether he just doesn't know the answers. He is a caring doctor so I know that it isn't arrogance. He is so hard to understand. Has anyone got any ideas why he's like this. Or has anyone got a doctor like this too. Chirley
