My GP has sent me to Edinburgh Royal Infimary so the medics can try to work out what’s going on. A doctor who described himself as a ‘lowly surgeon’ has arranged for me to have an endoscopy today. It wIll happen afather other surgeries have been completed and ORs are free, so not until late this evening. (Had my GP requested it, it might not happen for a fortnight or more.)
While the ‘lowly surgeon’ thinks it’s unlikely that I have stomach ulcers, the endoscopy (TV camera down the throat) will be definitive. If and when ‘surgical’ causes are ruled out, the next step would be a gastroenterologist specialist.
