My PCP finally got me in to see the RA doc sooner than next week, I go tomorrow yay hopefully they can get this under control and get me back on remicade or try humira. I just am a chicken when it comes to giving myself needles. I moved up my follow up with my surgeon since aI am still having pain etc. My GI office finally got back to me from last thursday, he okayed the questran but no one decided to call it in I will start that tomorrow. I hope that will help some of this cramping too.
As for that job interview I had I heard back today, since I have no primary medical experience they offered it to me as a temp to possible perm. job. Little do they know how much medical terminology I really know, and how many medical tests I can explain etc. I wouldnt get benefits since it is temp but after 3 or 4 months I reapply as a permanent and then if offered I would get all benefits offered. Cant help to get my foot in the door. I just hope my joints and belly calm down soon. They still have to call references and verify my education so I have about 2 weeks before I start. The hours are 8-4:30 and my next GI appt is in Oct at 4:45 which in that office I could walk from my new place of emploment and still get there on time.
Does anyone have tips on prevention of gas? I have severe gas pains often. Also any ideas about room deodorizer that I will most likely need when I have a BM when I get working?
