From what I have been reading Presby Dallas appears to have the best CD care in the DFW Metroplex. Apparently they are starting to use a less invasive surgery procedure that should reduce recovery time... we shall see about
In addition to finding a great doctor, I think I am going to visit with an apothecary who is a family friend and a Chinese herbalist. I want to learn about
natural anti-inflammatory and alternative medications as well. I am bound and determined to look at every option before succumbing to surgery.
Something has gotta give here. CD has really beaten me down, like everyone else. Most of the time now I just go into a fetal position and cry.
(when my daughter is not around, of course). I don't see how all these folks here have lived so long with this disease. I keep telling myself that I need to accept I will never be the same. If I could just get the symptoms down to a manageable level without so much pain and nausea meds then I would be content and perhaps be able to get out and spend time on my horse
Thanks again to each who has posted a reply. I am thankful to each of you.
