Hi all. I have diagnosed PA, am a member of PAS and have been hanging around this forum for a little while but this is my first question.
I am due for my next needle towards the end of next week and a week after that am going in for a gastroscopy/endoscopy procedure so will be under anaesthetic. I've read a few of the previous posts here about the affect anaesthetic has on B12 levels so I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts/experience on whether it is worth having my shot when it's due or if it would be better to push it back until after the procedure?
If I've read previous posts correctly would I be essentially wasting the B12 in the shot if I go beforehand? If I don't, is it likely to make the effect of the anaesthetic worse? I take forever to come out from under at the best of times.
I will be discussing the issue with the anaesthetist but that won't be until the day of the procedures so any thoughts anyone might have would be appreciated.
