they still had not received all my notes. What has complicated matters is, my Consultant placed me on steroids, back in May, then Mercaptopurine to get me off the steroids, which I finished taking on the 7th of November (I have PBC/AIH) Apart from the new GP's having never treated anybody with this, I have had two appointments cancelled by my consultant because she is off sick and not due back until the 17th of January. It also transpires that the other Gastroenterologist is now off sick as well, which leaves one Gastroenterologist to cover the whole of The Highlands and Islands, which is a massive area. Which means I am now stuck on Mercaptopurine (which is labelled as toxic when prescribed!) because nobody knows how to get me off them. Not an ideal situation !!
