Thought I'd let you know what has happened so far this week. Saw medical Dr. she upped steroids and sent me to GI. Saw the GI yeasterday. He started talking see you in 6 weeks. I said "time out!! that will not work." I wait 6 more weeks and then have this sugery I will lose my job and have no insurance.  Big note to self"THEY DON"T CARE!" After just about going postal on him he decided to listen. I had an upper endoscopy today. I have a SBF tomorrow morning, and a flex sigmoidoscopy Friday. Want to check andsee if any sign of rectal crohns beforemaking a decision to reconnect or just redo the stoma.
Hetellsme to call the surgeon and lets do this the week after Christmas. LOL right.... surgeon is taking a vacation that week. BIG FAT NEGATIVE. Call medical Dr. back she says start calling andlook for another surgeon myself. Guess I will trythat tomorrow.
So meanwhile after the scope I get myself something to eat. Apparently GI had taken my bag off to look at the stoma and the moron that fixed it, well let's just say she didn't . It popped off in the car....what a mess.... Iget to Daughter in laws, get half cleaned up, got on an 8 year olds pj pants, a zip lock bag taped to my stomach till I get home.
Never a dull moment!!

Aw, Cindy ..... (((hugs))). If you can find a surgeon will your GP do a referral for you? You never know, you may just find a GREAT surgeon!!! Stranger things have happened. One who listens to you, who cares, who listens, who is skilled .... hey, 'tis the season and you are DUE for some real blessings.
