So I went to my surgeon yesterday because I was running out of Pentasa & still do not have a GI. I talked to him all about my horrible hospital visit( I wrote about it a few months back) & such. He really is my favorite doctor. I told him how I was so confused and he goes "hunny, you were't confused, you were fine, THEY were the confused ones" he also proceeded to tell me that the next time they refuse to call him I just need to call him. He was shocked to find out that the Drs that I had told me I didn't need a surgen, and that I wasn't a surgical prospect. He told me since I have crohns I will always be a surgical prospect, whether it be 5, 10, 15, or 20 years from now. He said the reason my visit sucked is because I got stuck on the Imus (sp?) program, where basically I had a bunch of interns running amuck without a supervising dr!! Makes me feel a hell of alot better that I pushed so hard to get home after one day.
Well I have been bruising very badly for no reason, super tired all the time, starving all of the time and have these horrible bags under my eyes. Well he said he was going to pretend to be my Primary (since I dont have one) and he's sending me for a bunch of bloodwork & tests. I am NOT anemic, for once in my life! He thinks that I am not absorbing anything but calories.. boo, thats why Im so chunky! lol He also told me that since my surgery, my crohns is not "difficult" it's still severe but itresponds to treatments very well. I find that somewhat of good news :)
He is also refereing me to see another GI (since I didn't get along very well with my last one) I have an appointment next wednesday. WISH ME LUCK! I hope I like this one.
