BADGER THE HECK OUT OF THE GI's OFFICE!!!! You should not have to wait that long to see your GI, particularly when you're in a flare.
I was really sick this time last year. I have 6-month appointments with my GI so I wasn't scheduled to see him again until June. But I was in a full flare for the first time and I was scared. I called his nurse in tears going on and on about the vomiting, overnight D, fatigue, etc...she NEVER called me back. So I called her AGAIN. Never heard back from her.
So I called the front desk girl and told her I HAD to get in to see my GI because I was really sick and didn't know what to do. So she says, "I'm sorry HUN...he's out of town this week." So I said, "Well then get me an appointment with his NP, HUN!" Then SHE says, "Oh, um...I don't know. Did the GI say it was OK for you to see the NP?" WHAT?! What the heck is she talking about? I need permission from my GI to see his own NP? I told her I did not CARE what the GI thought as he was NOT in the office which means his NP is in charge. She put me on hold and I was in the next day for an appointment to see him.
