I know I havent written in a while, but i have been busy moving and such.
I received a call from my doctor, about my b12, he said my deficiency is real bad, and that i need to have injections yesterday. Im not absorbing b12, and he suggests that with my other problems, that maybe it is something to do with the small bowel.
He also suggests that i take the test for celiacs disease just to rule it out. That test is 135 dollars, and it is not covered by ohip.
I have a new doctor, and he didnt seem to be too concerned about what was going on. I guess we will have to see. He did send me for a pelvic ultrasound though, and told me to keep my appointment in kingston in april to see the gi.
Hopefully soon, we will have some answers, cause this really really is a pain.
Thanks again everybody, and if I dont speak to any of you before, have a safe and wonderful holiday :)

Hi Kelly glad your move is over. Boy with that low B12 that makes me believe you have Crohns even more. I know you will be so glad to finally get a diagnosis. Please keep us posted on what the doc says. And I hope you have a wonderful and healthy Christmas.
