For many of us when we were in the consultant room it was both a relief and a shock to find that finally there was an answer to our symptoms. We experienced a mixture of emotions ranging from feeling on a high to tears and anger at why it was not picked up years ago. However, many of us found that we left our consultations still not really understanding what the condition was and how best to manage it. This was either because there was so much to take in we did not hear everything and/or we were not given enough information at the time. In addition some of us were not given any supporting patient information to digest at a later point or any follow up appointment / contact.
If you feel you are still unsure about what type of BAD you have (Primary or Secondary) and the severity (mild, moderate or severe) then take a look at the what is bad section or ask your GP. If your GP does not know then show them BAM Support UK’s GP Information leaflets which can be downloaded or printed from here, or ask your GP to contact your consultant for further information. It is important to be aware that if you have not had a SeHCAT scan then the severity classification of your symptoms will not be known.
