      Sorry to hear sad I dunno about in your area but in mine the Hospital has a IBD Nurse Specialist who you can telephone and hopefully get some semblance of care / advice,, also you must talk to your GP and tell them that this Hospital / Consultant are - with all due respect - sh*t and that you want to go to a different Hospital / Consultant neutral

    I agree with Benny - if you are not getting anywhere with your consultant - you need to speak up and get a new one.  Have you asked your GP?  We, the patients have to be proactive - and make sure we get the care we want and deserve. Its difficult when we are poorly - but we are the only ones who can do it.

    I strongly suggest you get a new consultant and hopefully better treatment.  Sorry its so rough for you.  Good luck.

      Absolutely.  I have found with the NHS that you have to be in the driver seat, It should not have to be that way - it should go without saying patients deserve the best care and compassion from the health providers without question- but under the strain of so many patients and s few doctors, and with the NHS restrictions, I think they get overwhelmed and forget this very important piece.  Sadly.  I find I have to be a real squeaky wheel sometimes - but once I learned that it was easier to make the NHS work for me.  No one should leave a patient feeling as you have described.  I really hope you can find a provider to not only help your ailments, but give you some comfort and empathy too which are very important in the healing process.  Keep us posted.  smile

      Thank you I realise now I have to be in more control. Im not a confident person anymore but think I need to dig deep and find some strength. I can't go on this way.
