This is a question for UK members. Do you get treated by a gastro dr or liver specialist? I’m currently under a gastro consultant at my local hospital in West Wales, but I’m not receiving follow up appointments and last time I spoke to the medical secretary she said the dr was ‘away’ and not sure when he was coming back?? My numbers have recently spiked after being normal and now I wonder if I should try and get on a liver specialist book? I’m not quite sure 1) whether this is necessary and 2) how I go about this? Grateful for others opinions and experiences.
I’m just finding the whole waiting around for appointments and not getting them so frustrating. I’ve had to request my last 2 blood tests myself. My GP doesn’t seem to send my test results to the hospital...it all seems so disjointed, and I wonder if I would receive better monitoring through a specialist. From what I can see on the internet, the nearest specialist to me in West Wales is Birmingham (4hours away).
My main concern is that I’m not responding to URSO...the only times my numbers come down is when I take my herbal tincture, but my GP refuses to acknowledge that it’s the herbal working not the URSO.
Best wishes and Happy New Year to everyone.
