Hi Everyone,

Just got out today after going in thursday. I had had enough! I was in so much pain and was sick to death of patching this disease with a liquid diet and too many painkillers so i went into emergency and while i'm still exhausted but feeling better from some high doses of steroids and much needed pethidine. My Gi saw me and has me booked in for a pill cam and colonoscopy/gasteroscopy on Wednesday but I believe that FINALLY my point has come across that I am not well and need some better care. Its a shame many of us have to get attention this way.

So sorry to hear about the hospital visit, but like you said hopefully this will get you on the path to getting some tests and getting to feel better.
