Had to go to surgery this morning to drop a letter from my ophthalmologist. While there a nurse saw me (she had tried to phone me but did not get an answer neither did she leave a message), asking me to go and see her.
A couple of week ago when I saw my GP I said i'd like to be given the chance to have B12 injection and see if it would helped my symptoms (had been asking for a while, see previous posts please). After much dithering she said would consider it for 3 months bur needed to ask her colleagues' opinion!!! and would let me know. Following day I collected a letter from surgery in which she said the consensus was: ONE injection then retesting 2 weeks later. I ignored that letter, yet I am not in the habit of being discourteous by not replying to letters...
A week ago a nurse phoned me to make an appointment for THE injection. Told her to tell GP this would be a pointless experiment since it would set me up to fail... "See we've tried B12 and it made no difference" sort of scenario... also a waste of nurse's time. Told nurse I was due to see GP again on 2 February. The nurse I saw this morning was keen for me to make an appointment for "the 5 injections regime".... ??? what's that? Told her I did not want that and would be writing to GP prior to my seeing her on Thursday.
So I would be interested to hear what you think of this rather odd situation. When I saw GP last month I showed her guidelines for B12, having highlighted certain things relating to my symptoms. So what made her change her mind from ONE to FIVE and keen to get on with it??? Perhaps she wants to get rid of me....?
Also, is it really worth it doing 5 injections and then nothing??? I've read so many times this is pointless.... So, once more : HELP and guidance before I see GP on Thursday.
With my thanks in anticipation of your useful ideas and great support.
