Just thought I might post a good news story.
A couple of years ago my gp, who allowed me to have my B12 injections every three weeks, retired.
The next gp I saw in the practice wondered why but said he would carry on. He said he didn’t know too much about B12 so I gave him a copy of Martyn Hoopers latest book.
He obviously read it and it would appear many more patients in the practice have been getting tested. So much so that they have had to set up one dedicated day each week to run a B12 clinic for injections.
I asked him this morning if there was any chance that the nurse would be able to teach me to self inject. Although he admitted that none of the other patients do this he said he would be happy to discuss the possibility with her and she could let me know when I go for my next injection. As he said it would save time for the practice and means I don’t have to struggle to get ready to go to the surgery.
I think this must be one of the rare success stories and it may not have been like this if I hadn’t received loads of advice from the good people here and at PAS on what to say to the gp when I first asked for more frequent injections.
Thanks to you all ❤️
