So, I had posted on here last week about an increase in symptoms, ie: blood in stools, abdominal pain, lower back pain. I tried calling my GI for the second time yesterday, and I was told by a secretary that I may just need to go to the ER, because my doc had no openings. Errr!!! Well, I don't even know why I call him my doctor. I can never get a hold of him, and apparently he can't help me when I really need him. Anyway, I decided to go ahead and go to the ER to get some relief and some answers.
I was there until 2:30am, and I still don't know what's going on. My stool tested positive for blood, but the CT came back with no apparent problems (pockets of air, abscesses, thickening of the walls). So I guess I'm just having bleeding ulcers, but I would really like to know for sure. Oh well, I guess I will just have to wait and see my doc in a month!
