I hope this helps you as much as it first helped me. I'd bookmark it or print it out so it's on hand when you need it I did and use it alot. Best regards Rob

I can totalyy empathise with your confusion, so many different symptoms, tests,treatments and medications. It can blow your mind when you get hit with it all at once.
I think if I were you I would not yet ask about going onto further drugs-I may be wrong but it appears that Drs/GI's/consultants are pretty quick to dish out further/stronger drugs without too much prompting.I am not saying that they are wrong I just think hang on a minute, can't we give 'X' a bit longer to work before you add 'Y' to the cocktail. I guess it is a very fine balance betwen the two!
