Update: the doc left a message today (wed) on my vmail. I missed the call. She said mild to moderate inflammation in the small intestine above the surgical site and at the surgical site. Also scattered mild inflammation in the colon which is pretty consistent with my symptoms. She said she would try to call me later (she's scoping today) and I called and left another message for her. I also made an appt to sit down, look at photos and come up with the right medicine strategy. It's not much different than I thought before but since she's my new doc, she needed to see it for herself. I'm thinking first line meds will probably be the way to go but she may be more aggressive. I will update later if I have more info. Thanks for reading along.
ps..she apologized for not getting back to me sooner. She's somewhat redeemed.
I hope someone can talk me off the ledge about this. I'm pretty annoyed.
I had a 3pm appointment. That's way late but I had no choice if I wanted an anesthesiologist. I had it done at Cornell. Big fancy teaching hospital.
My doc arrives one hour late. I'm already starving, nervous..freaked out.
I wake up in the middle with pain. I'm sure they upped my dose because the next thing I know I'm waking up. ...on a different floor. My husband had to be told to go to another floor to meet me. I had no clue that was going to happen.
I'm waking up and my husband comes to meet me. I ask for the doc. They call down to find out she's already left. I asked the nurses if everything was ok and she said yes. Continue with my meds. (antibiotics).
I put a call into her office this morning and I'm still waiting to hear.
I never had this experience before. Maybe this is ok? But I'm a bit pizzed off.
I was given propofol and versed. I was never given versed before with propofol but I woke up to an IV in my arm which was put in before and one in my hand which must have been done while I was semi-conscious.
28 years with Crohns in the term ileum. Feb 07 Resection. No meds currently..but there will be some I'm sure. Taking acidophilus.
