I have done my homework, and yes i never sugarcoat anything. i have a daily diary of symptoms and side effects and how it affects my life. i have documented everything...being very organized this time. i have sent them so much paperwork that they will be informed as best as i can do. i also have this company working for me that deals exclusively with disability cases, so i am hoping they will get it done. i also have good doctors/therapists that will write in depth reports on what i have been going through this last year. i go in monday for a bowel resection. the drain catheter that has been in for 36 days now isnt working to get rid of the abscesses/fistula, so doc decided its time to do the surgery. i will continue on the remicade afterwards he said. hoping this will work, because i am really tired of all this and this catheter sucks!!!!thanks for the replies and advice. i know disability is a long process and i have to be persistent....but you are right about the sugar coating....i probably give more detail than they can stand. i am in for the long haul...wish me luck.
i will be in the hospital a week, so i will keep you posted after i am back home..............good day to all!!!
