MY CD surgeon first ordered the shots back when, but I only go to a GI now and he writes the RX I give myself the shots since it is lifetime maintenance and sooooo cheap to do it myself. I can buy the supplies and RX for the shots for under $20 for the entire year!!!! shots every 2 weeks.
Have you been tested for B12 levels? It's just a simple lab draw.... results take a little longer to get for me, about a week.
I'm due for a shot right now, and have taken a nap yesterday, and today. I even went to bed at 7:30 last night! My appetite sucks right now too.
Let me know what you find out!
