Hey surfer.....I'm around quite a bit as I'm on call for my job and looking at more surgery maybe this Wed so I maybe around even more. I love to chat on here. Your statement about
your Pastor made me laugh...cuz on here we're always complaining about
our Dr's. So instead of looking for a new Dr. you could look for a new Pastor. I live alone also my kids are both grown adults and I'm also in an isolated area. It is also hard to find a good counselor that really listens....so sometimes forums like this can be a God send.
June 2011 - My symptoms felt like I had 100 hemorrhoids, fever, major calf cramps at night.

July 25th 2011 - Second surgery home care...no packing.
Sept 2011 - Colonoscopy ruled out crohns, colon cancer, polyps - since I have a family history
