Check this out. Very aggitated from all this.
So i am seeing some of the best Doctors in the country and I am getting the run around.

I had a small bowel follow through in Later September and a bunch of bloodwork.
Bloodwork also a few weeks ago which was pretty good.

I spoke with university of Chicago (UofC) to speak about treatment and was told to see my G.I here and than have them speak to UofC because I cant really commute their right now because of a back injury and its an 1.5hr drive etc..

So i saw my G.I here and we talked about my remicade infusions and methotrexate.

The remicade is helping a little bit only lasts so long and it doesnt seem to be putting me in a remission type path at all.

I called them earlier today and NOW THEY want me to speak to university of chicago AGAIN to get a recommendation about MTX. This doctor here does NOT want to treat me apparently and doesn't want to perscribe it or pretty much deal with me. UofC doesnt want to treat me over the phone which is 100% understandable because the last time i seen them was my Small Bowel Series in september but bloodwork last week. I am not able to get down there which is WHY he said she the doctor by ur location and than i will give them a recommendation following that appontment.

So pretty much all that was for nothing and its like im back at sqaure one.. What was the point of all that? i did everything they wanted me to do.

So i made an appointment to see Dr. Mary Kane in Arlington Heights.
I know A few of you are from the Chicago area. Anyone heard of this MD? Thanks! all Sorry for the RANNNNT.
