I was diagnosed with PBC on December the 31st. I see a Gastro but consultant but I was wondering if a proper heptolgoist would be better. The guy I see is rather lax, not very communicative etc, really no help in explaining things at all. I have just asked his secretary if they could bring my June appoinment forward as I am suffering excruciating upper stomach pains, she said to go to A&E?? When I said NO she said she would get him to ring back Monday and maybe??
