I had a capsule colonoscopy done about
a month ago. After two x-rays my gi decided it was not going to come out on it's own because of a stricture. I'm having a flexible sigmoidoscopy done at his office on Feb. 11 and he said that if he can't get it out that way that he will have to remove it surgically
. According to the capsule results i have signifigant disease and i will probably have to have surgery sometime in the near future.I'm going to ask him If he has to surgically remove the capsule if he can go ahead and remove the stricture at the same time(kill 2 birds w/ 1 stone). The only problem is that i don't have any medical insurance. The DHS office said that i don't qualify for a medicaid card because i am not disabled and i can still work( that was 4 years ago and at the time i ONLY
had a mild case of crohn's). I'm going to apply again and hopefully i will get approved. So wish me luck and God bless all of you!
