Sounds like teachers over there have it more problematic with returning. Mentally my brother is not ready to return to the classroom with the virus issues in States.

I do think doctors now know much better how to combat the virus if infected, issue could evolve if cases keep spiraling that it overwhelms the heath care system and can no longer treat all the hospitalizations that are needed.

Stay safe!

AS may win some battles, but I will win the war.

Kat - Leicestershire. Know it sort of well. Have family up there, Seagrave and Saltby - plus my first rheumy, Dr Alison Kinder, Leicester Royal, who came with an excellent reference from fellow KA member (Strutsy). Consulted with Dr Kinder - still have all the reports and MRIs - then she went on maternity leave and I never got to see her again, then, I relocated to France in 2008.
In between I did get to consult with another very good rheumatologist, Dr Millicent Stone, (ex Canada) *also recommended by a KA member. Dr Stone was then living, working, down in Bath - I hopped over the channel to see her. Then she moved up to London. Sure do miss my very good rheumatologists.
Was most interested in your 'histoire'. Think I am running a parallel to you as sure ties in with my own experiences! So many years down the line, and going to have to sort, as beyond a joke now complete with a rectal prolapse. Ho-Hum. Got to find someone over here who 'knows' how to deal with the problem, as also, massive adhesions at the ilium. What a pair. Sigh.
Who are the consultants you are seeing Kat ? Dunno what I can do, but good information is always good information. yes

In my wee neck of the woods, we are not too bothered by the virus. Most people do not wear masks, but from the 1 Aug, masks will be mandatory in enclosed spaces, means ALL shops - our restaurants are open, so not sure how one eats wearing a mask...!! At the moment, mask when entering and leaving and moving around in the restaurant. Otherwise, masks off. Suppose that element of the mask wearing will continue in like vein.

I do voluntary work for an animal rescue charity. In charge of the books section. Just one day a week, which makes a break from being attached to the laptop - my umbilical cord <smile> A very small garden gives another break in routine. Still busy with it - might get it right one day...! No animals. Miss them all, but impossible in present circs, so help out friends when they might need a dog, cat, house, whatever sitter.

So one staggers on. Great catching you - take care, and, so glad you finally got sorted - can we clone your medical team ?? (When you see Strutsy, please do give her my best wishes. Tell her Angus is still with us.)

Kat -
Take a look at LDN - low dose Naltrexone. It has a good track record in dealing with Crohn's.
I found it efficacious for AS inflammation, and was on it myself for a number of years.
Here's the LDN website : A wealth of information including trials etc.
Do keep us updated Kat - Take care, All Best Wishes -

Kat erreur... I put Saltby down for my nephew Angus, incorrect, it is Sowerby ! Brain fart, again ! Sowerby is near
Barrow-on-soar and also near Cossington.
Another brain fart, thought I had already submitted this, and only right found that I hadn't ! Ohhh errrr. MS brain farts methinks !
Take care - we are all wearing masks again in confined / public places.
