In reply to Volley, I was told more than 12 months ago that regular 3 monthly injections would stop and that I could not have a B12 test for two years. In the meantime I knew that symptoms of deficiency were returning so, having managed to get an appointment at last, a nurse practitioner prescribed B12 tablets on a three monthly basis. Still feeling dreadful on occasions I am sitting it out until the 2 years are up. I was told it was new standard practice after a review. I am very dissatisfied with the whole system, especially since it took some years for the regular injections to have any marked effect. I am rapidly declining to what I fear is pre-square 1. Requesting appointments, consultations and medical advice would appear to be a waste of my time and requires a level of energy and patience which I do not have (symptomatic?)
