Zanne, they have new preps with Miralax that are way better than the go lightly. Yea, I have to weight out my options here. I am better than I was back in January, but not as well as I would like to be. I keep having flare ups that have made me use 82 hours of sick leave since January. I feel it is too soon for another colonoscopy. My doc is at a major medical center and they only want to see you once a year! Isn't that some s--t? In between, you call in. IF they think you are sick enough, you get an appointment. Otherwise, no. So, I tried another doctor and they immediately wanted to do another scope since my prometheus test said I had crohn's. I mean, can' t they just change my meds based on that? I've heard they decided whether or not to do surgeries based on the prometheus results. This is just a hassle, what else can I say? LOL....
