Hi all, I've been taken off Methotrexate after being hospitalized due to being extremely ill with vomiting and headaches. My liver function tests came back raised and a scan showed dilated biliary ducts (19 mm ) . Methotrexate was stopped and I was given a steroid injection to help me through. I have an MRCP due this weekend as they think I may have a blockage, I've been in quite a bit of pain (no gallbladder btw).
The tiredness and generally feeling unwell is getting me down now, and my concern is that I will have a wait until the Methotrexate starts working if they put me back on it , if not I so hope they offer me an alternative.
I've been without medication for 6 weeks now and am really struggling. Has anyone had a similar experience? I'm getting so down and am worried about the outcome of the MRCP scan.
To top it all my rheumatologist appointment in August has yet again been cancelled due to "unforeseen circumstances " . This is the 6th time , I have seen the nurse but feel I really need to speak to the rheumatologist about this.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Sending love x
