I recently went to my GP for an update and I asked for a script for Probiotics which I am eligible for under Dept Vet Affairs Gold Card. For most of you, you will be aware that I have had this condition for nearly 5years now and after my ablation 4 months ago I haven't looked back.
During my journey I was diagnosed from a Gastroenterologist that I have IBS, which seemed to have started at the same time as my Heart Arrhythmia and any episode really effected my gut at the same time. The thing that bothers me is that she didnt want to give me any script for this, and told me to think about it?
I have been paying for it over the counter, but the Chemist told me to ask for a Script because others under the Gold Card can and get this product under DVA.
I go back to see her next week, and I have thought about it, but lets face it probiotics are not cheap I thought I would ask for a referral back to my Gastroenterologist and and get him to give me a script, and don't feel so good about going back to ask her for this. Your thoughts about this dilemma would be appreciated.
