So yesterday I posted a note saying how pissed I was at my surgeon because he had no idea what i was there for...
 
Well, they called back today...
 
Turns out that I have a very significant stricture (DUH)
I will need surgery (DUH)
It needs to get taken care of fairly quickly (DUH)
 
I tried telling them that stuff yesterday...
 
Now I have to go back on Tuesday and talk about who knows what.....
 
I should have been a surgeon.

You should play a trip on Dr. Duh. When he starts talking about surgery, say you have no idea what he is talking about because you are there for a heart transplant. On second thought, don't do that. He may try to give you a transplant during stricture surgery!

How about getting another surgeon?? A colo-rectal surgeon who has a lot of experience with CD? I wouldn't let this guy get anywhere near me with a scapel....

I didn't mean to rub it in. You get a free Badger tattoo with every surgery.
