Still having a battle trying to get Rifaximin prescribed on the NHS, the cogs seem to move so slowly .... so I took the private prescription in to the chemist and we now have four weeks supply for £320! Whatever it takes, that was ten days ago and meantime together with the lactulose, it does not appear to be making any difference to the toxins. Going to try Manuka honey from New Zealand MGO 300, anyone tried this? Consultation on the 7th told the clots in the portal vein are masking liver cancer and my beloved Peeps now has 6 to 12 months and then the follow up letter came on Valentine's Day to say it was more like six months. It's been a real tough week and now friends and family are going into panic mode wanting to visit and stay over etc etc and we both just want to be able to quietly hibernate. Are we being selfish? I'm finding it hard to keep the lid on.
