That's horrible. Have you met the GP who is taking his place? Maybe he can fix what the other doc left you with.

thanks baby

its a pratice , there are about 6 gps, i have seen a couple of them but he was the senior doc, i dont think it will matter to much they dont have regular pationts now days if you want in quick you see who is avalable at the earlyest time. he may have done me a favour in a way it was just a blow to see his face in the local paper saying he had left.he new the loz addiction was down to him an his script pad, lets just hope the other docs see it that way an dont do a stupid withdrawl ,im still getting over loosein 6 0f the 10loz i carnt take yet another withdrawl not yet anyway.:unsure::unsure:
