Hi all well the wait continues for just a little clarity. Ultrasound done but no idea when results will be reported as hospital could not tell me so I hope no news is good news. ALT nearly normal, GGT and ALP unchanged and remain high. All symptoms remain the same but the back ache is worse. Have now seen 4 GPs in my practice as I can't seem to get the same one twice despite asking and being prepared to wait. All say different things so am really feeling like I am living in limbo 2 of them say take pain killers 2 say don't with the last one even giving me a prescription for diazepam which I informed him that I can't take as it makes me unable to function properly and I have two small children to look after so have not got that one yet. Oh and he even suggested that I have a sore throat that I don't know about that could be causing all other symptoms which I find quite funny as if I get a sore throat I know it last time needed ENT and IV antibiotics as within 3 hours of getting a sore throat it nearly closed completely am still hoping they will remove tonsils at some point but that's another story. I have been more pushy asking questions and trying to give them more family history as my paternal nan has had 4 cancers in the last 10 years one being kidney cancer which was removed 8 weeks ago and my Grandad having COPD and my other nan dying of liver issues ( non Alcohol related ) but it falls on deaf ears. Any suggestions as to what to do next? As I feel like they see me as a time waster.
