How are things with you?

Have there been any developments in your various medical dramas?

Swamped indeed. :) I got my bucket and I am bailling, but still wacking the malfunctioning pumps.

No new news yet the VA GI wants to do a scope to determind if the bad areas are scaring or just inflammation.

*sigh* How frustrating. Sorry, Navy.

Will your doc at least make sure that the surgeon is present during the scope so you won't have to redo one for a pre-surgical workup?

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder if he (he is a young VA GI) feels that the surgeon is not good ( and cannot say but because you cannot sue the VA docs) and therefore thinks I will be better off at the local hospital?

Yeah I am also wondering if they are thinking I am too overweight to have an "Optional" surgery.

Sadly you know my thoughts on the VA, but you have to decide for yourself if you are getting the best care you can. Remember you are worth a lot more than a few bucks,,,well,,,at least to me and us crohnie folks. Sooooo, you take good care of you,,, OK ????
