I was diagnosed with non alcoholic cirrhosis after a bowel cancer operation 4 years ago.
Since then I have been trying to find reason for this with zero success I am above average in fitness & eat a good diet
/I do suffer from terrible insomnia which causes me to feel awful / severely depressed I read online that this is often a side effect of cirrhosis
I had fibroscan 4 yrs ago which showed 22 the next was Sep 2018 which showed 44
I am still awaiting result of a) ultra sound scan in Dec 2018 & biopsy Jan4 2019
When I phone consultant secretary I usually get ansaphone, but actually spoke to not his but another secretary this morning
She said still awaiting for at least two weeks consultant to sign of letter re ultra sound
& no knowledge of report from Kings re biopsy.
I respect my consultant & realise the unacceptable pressures on his time however this delay doesn’t help my state of mind
It would appear that my local Royal Cornwall Hospital has 2 consultants in this field Derriford Plymouth has 6
Should I ask for transfer?
