Finally got an appointment with the g.i. today(haven't seen doc since Nov). Appointment was for 1 pm, so I got there at 12:34. I had to get lables and that took 30 minutes. Didn't get in the room till after 3:30. I read and then took a nap on the table. Came in after 4:30. He left for a looooong time(he was consulating with the head doc). For some reason he seemed "off" today. He laugh a little too much today(at things I didn't find funny). I didn't walk out the office until 5:33(they close at 4:30). That is the fourth time that has happen. I am always sleepy and tired. It takes me over ah hour to get there and over a hour to get home. Catscan I took in Dec look normal(inflamation in the colon is a bit better). Bloodwork was good. Still not feeling good and I also just got over a bug. They still don't know if I need surgery
. They might increase my Remicade. Might get Remicade every 6 weeks, then every month if it is needed. Talking about
steriods again(I actually stopped breathing) and different medicines. He asked about
my mental state(little late on that). He also talked about
adding more antidepressants or increasing the current one. Getting a psychiatrist(is he calling me crazy?) I am not going to lie, at one point I stopped listening. So I am still just on Remicade. I was waiting for the head doctor to come in and say "Once again we're stump. See your next month, same time, same place". Of course he didn't. If I am lucky, I might have my answer about
surgery by the end of the year. I was thinking about
throwing a temper tantrum in the middle of the floor, but I figure they might commit to the mental disable floor of the hospital. At one point I didn't care about
my crohns. I went two years without treatment(only had 2 er visits). I am frustrated to the point of stopping treatment. I just want to get to that happy place. Even though I am angry, I smiled when a past by a house that was all decked for Mardi Gras. Hope I feel better and have an off day to go to a parade.
Don't judge a book by its movie.
In the past I have taken Asacol, 6mp, Prednisone(3x), Remicade, Flagyl, Cipro, Phenergan, Colazal(think there was others).
