Well after a wait of over 20 weeks I finally saw a liver doctor. He was lovely, he didn't rush me and went through all my hospital admissions and tests. He is insisting on my blood being checked for autoimmune hepatitis as my gp requested it 3 times and the consultant in charge of the labs kept refusing it. If it comes back negative he will do a liver biopsy. He told me that although I'd been waiting for this appointment for so long lots of tests were being done whilst I waited. I told him that was purely due to my private consultation with a gastroenterologist. He was horrified by this and said it was completely unacceptable. He should have the blood tests back within a week and then if necessary he will book the biopsy. He asked me if I wanted to be consulted before booking the biopsy and was I happy to have it done. I told him I just want answers and will have any tests necessary.
I am booked in for a gastroscopy at the beginning of Dec and the original consultant will perform it with another consultant???
I have started with the itching but hopefully it will go away? I finally fell asleep last night/this morning at 7.30am, I feel like I've been run over by a truck 😴😕 hope you are all well and well done reading my version of war and peace. Deb
