Thank you very much.
@ Dragonfly. Hope you feel better soon:)
@ Tsitodawg. How are you doing and how's the NJ tube? Do you feel better now? Yes, I agree with you that I should see another doc and take a second opinion, but I'm fed up. I have already taken several opinions and they just said that this could be IBS though I have taken all possible meds for IBS for more than 10 years but in vain. It was this GI that took the risk of putting me on pred (already developed hypertension), MTX and Entocort which put my symptoms under control. A previous scope performed last summer showed that I have chronic proctitis. But since it was performed by another GI other than my GI, he refused to accept the scope and he is now questioning my having proctitis altogether since the last biopsies did not reveal any kind of proctitis. I know that I am suffering with my GI but I have to cope since he is the best in the city and if I want to see somebody else I have to travel to another country. Poor we, Crohnies, we have to suffer from a DD and at the same time bear up with an uncomprehending GI, at least in my situation.
