GP/hospital now - I have no experience but these symptoms are serious best of luck to you both


Thank you hopefully his gastro nurse is having a meeting with his liver consultant today and she has promised to phone me as to what they intend to do for him thanks again for your reply


Who took him off them GP or Consultant? If GP bypass them and if Consultant ring his secretary, if no joy I would suggest A&E ASAP before this gets any worse. He shouldn't have to suffer this it's very painful and distressing he needs treatment straight away. Hope you get some sense!


His gastro took him of them but with the consent of his liver consultant,i phoned his consultant's sec but he was on holiday, but I have managed to get in touch with another gastro nurse today the blood test he had yesterday shows his kidney function is hasn't improved she is going to speak to another consultant and phone me back today really hope she does. Thank you for your reply
