My appointment with the gastro went really well. First time seeing him. I am such a newbie at this. I was under the impression I was going to get the colonoscopy done that day, nope. I was wrong, as you all probably know very well. Anyway...after the physical exam, he set me up for the colonoscopy and endoscopy for this Wednesday. Saying if he doesn't find what he is looking for, he will do a different small intestine colonoscopy. (Sorry don't know what that one is called).
He was a little perturbed at the ER, stating that they should have done a colonoscopy on me with the symptoms I came into the ER with instead of sending me home. He said that could have been a dangerous situation. I was actually surprised to hear him talk like that. He had me put my hand on each side of my abdomen and showed me how much warmer one side was compared to the other. He said that is from inflammation inside.
After Wednesday I should know a little more. Thank you for the support and knowledge provided. It really helps during this new area of life I'm walking in right now.
