I was diagnosed with anaemia in February this year which kick started all the tests which ultimately came back as cirrhosis.
I am waiting to see a hepatologist but an urgent appointment is up to 4 weeks wait and non urgent up to 14. Hopefully i will find out which list I'm on tomorrow. Since the anaemia diagnoses I have been taking iron tablets 3 times a day but I've read that a cirrhotic liver can't process iron so I stopped taking it a week ago. When I spoke to my gp I asked if the cirrhosis has caused the anaemia he said it wouldn't have. I've read since that it does cause anaemia. It doesn't fill you with great confidence in your gp when they obviously don't even know the basics.
