the main problem with rheumatology in New Zealand is that we are very short of rheumatologists, so they are very hard to get into, and follow up is pretty limited.

The dx doesn't matter nearly as much as the treatment, although of course it is satisfying to be given a specific dx. Cellcept is also available in Nz, though you have to get it approved for funding because it's not on pharmacs approved list, so maybe you could ask your rheumie as to whether that could be a possibility ?

Best of luck with your journey - I had multiple miscarriages too (I have APS) then eventually a healthy full term pg and I never tried again. Figured I'd stop while I was ahead.

nice to see another kiwi out there, it doesn't happen often
