Hi Mik, thanks for the reply, very informative, today's little twist is a letter from the gastric dept at the local hospital discharging me from their care stating that my illness is nothing they can deal with and referring me back to my GP, which is basically what I expected, so 15 months in and still at the starting blocks lol
The GP's surgery I'm at has a few internal problems going on and reading between the lines the partnership that exists is about
to be dissolved, leaving me a month wait at least to see my doctor (if he's still there at that point) or an appointment with a locum in a fortnight, living in rural Norfolk choices are limited so I'll have to go with that for now.
I'll ask for a course of antibiotics and hopefully get them to try, and will ask for the bloods to be done, was for a start quite laid back with the doctors and just assumed that they were working to some kind of order, but have since realised that once things get past a certain point they look as if they lose interest and just appear to be running around in circles to be seen to do something, so I understand that its up to me to take this to them now which is going to be interesting.
I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't mind sending me over details of the lab in Scotland and anything else you wouldn't mind sharing to give me something to get my teeth into, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org , once again many thanks, Andy
