Hey everyone I hope you all are well I made it to my G.I. appointment this morning I was so worried that I would not make it.I did cause I knew this appointment was important to me to make I go there on time at 10:45 as usual he was running a little behind.I hate that about him cause there is only 2 main doctors in the G.I center and my doctor is the best out of the two so he has a lot of patients.So I waited for a bit and had to use the restroom two times just to pass gas lol.They finally called me waited for a bit my doctor came in he asked me how I was feeling and I told him not good I've been having bad symptoms mentioned I was feeling constipated and having diarrhea.I mentioned how I do not want to accept living with IBS and how hard it is for me and that I want to get back to loving and enjoying my life.He's always so calm and noncholat about my situation he was like were not going to get rid of IBS but he will try his best to work with me to get my problems under control.I was ok but I was unable to get the test that I mention there like the one for Candida I need to go somewhere else to get them done.I am so fine with that as long as I get to find out what else may be wrong that I could probably fix.He put me on a medication for the diarrhea Lomotil I took it today worked out ok and about the gas situation as always he was like gas is something the average person passes 14 times a day.I was like I feel I pass more then that lol and he asked me what I eat and to stay away from beans and dairy which I have done.I wasn't happy with his respond to it before IBS I was not hardly passing so much gas something must be wrong when it comes to that.I'm going to end up having another upper endoscopy done and a cat scan done and I have to return stool samples again.I pray these test will show up something so I can resolve some of my symptoms by getting them under control so I can love my life again.He also mentioned I should take fiber supplement and stick to taking that I'm going to go back on digestive enzymes and make sure I get a good supply of them cause they seemed to have really help with the gas I never want to run out of them.Well thank you for taking to time to read about my day please continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers with all my love wishing you good digestive health. jtaurus :-)
