I was really good wrote a list of questions took my husband but still managed to come home without all the answers!
Question : what stage am I at ?
Reply : well there are no signs of Cirrhosis the surgeon who removed your gallbladder didn't mention it in post op report.
(Was he looking for it I think ) your bloods have improved since last time since taking urso but I would like to increase your dosage.
Question: What happens now ?
Reply: I will make a follow up appointment for 6- 8 months. I will also request an appointment for you to have a bone density scan. (Closes my file)
Frustration has now set in I then ask what is the long term prognosis ?
Reply: I expect you to have a normal life expectancy if you levels stay the same. ( moves in his chair appt is over )
I then ask what can I do about fatigue ? Should I be taking any supplements.
Well with you gallbladder and hernia you can't be sleeping it shud improve.
I then say but I just feel like someone turns my power off by mid afternoon! no response just hand in the form to nurse on way out and she will arrange bone scan.
well I've got another six months to work myself up to getting the response I need
FRUSTRATION is not the word !!!!
