Just had my first b12 injection at the surgery.
It was a pleasant pain free experience but spoilt ever so slightly by the lack of understanding demonstrated by the nurse.
This is the same nurse who the receptionist consulted with to advise that loading doses aren't necessary. (I guess that's maybe right)
I asked her if I needed to wait after the injection with it being my first ever and she just said no why would you want to do that?
I said because it's the first one and she just said "it's only a vitamin you make in your body".......
The only advice I got was make an appointment in three months time.
I feel it's such a shame that a qualified nurse doesn't understand the basics of what they are giving patients regularly or how to advise on dietary basics.
More importantly though I fear this is the very reason why people remain un or undertreated.
Something must be done to educate everyone.
