Had my appointment with the prof in Newcastle, I'm going on the trials for the bile drugs hopefully in 2-3 months, it was proven from the bile drainage procedure that I endured that my itch is caused by the bile getting into my bloodstream, so it is something in the bile that I produce that causes it.
With the itch like many of you I get little or no sleep and have asked my GP on many occasions for sleeping tablets but she has said they don't prescribe them any more, so I asked the prof for something as I was desperate for a good night instead of getting to the stage where I litterally just flop at the most in opportune times, He did prescribe some and I was absolutely delighted I finally had something that works.
But don't hold your breath folks, went to my GP this morning for a repeat and she refused point blank to give me them stating that within a fortnight I would be addicted and that if I want more I will have to go through the Prof!!!!
Back to square one for me, as you may recall I'm in leeds and the prof is in Newcastle so it won't be a quick process to get some more.
On a different topic I also asked GP for something to ease my menopause symptoms she also refused to give me anything and said I should take it up with Prof, has any of you had HRT or anything else? Any advise would be truly appreciated.
