Well, I had my appointment with the GI doc. He didn't do much of anything except listen to my heart and lungs, asked about symptoms and where it hurt. Set me up for Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, and xray of the small intestine. Also wants to do a pelvic CT scan to check the status of the fistula which I said we need to hold off on because he may see what he needs during the other tests, I hope. I know my insurance isn't going to cover all of these things so I have to cut back on some things. He says he does suspect inflammatory but doesn't know which type and wants to cover all bases.
Just wanted to update you.
