Could anyone explain the difference between a Gastroenterologist and a Hepatologist and which one I should see for my PBC if there is a difference.
I saw a Gastroenterologist for my diagnosis. He told me I had PBC, told me that the tiredness was nothing to do with the PBC because my liver is not to badly damaged he gave me a persciption for URSO told me to look at the PBC foundation website and said he would see me in 12 months time.
I wasn't given the chance to ask any questions or get any further information, I have been back to my GP regarding the tiredness and was told that she thought it was related to the PBC and wondered why the consultant said it wasn't but she is reluctant refer me back to him.
Can anyone tell me if I can choose which consultant I want to see how to choose who will be best and how I can see the consultant I choose
