Mum is 85, has Pernicious anemia, diagnosed 50+ years ago, positive intrinsic factor reult hence the injections every 12 weeks. The surgery stopped her injections in November, 6 months ago, she is now very lethargic, often confused, severely breathless.The gp say she no longer needs injections as her levels are correct?! and has referred her to asthma clinic for her breathlessness. I have the same but have im injections every 8 weeks and was told it will be for life, Has her doctore got it wrong? I feel they are just pushing her symproms aside, at this rate another few weeks and she wont be able to walk to the toilet as she is so out of breath. Any advise would be gratefully recived.
