Went back to the NP today. Our dialogue was like deja vu.
NP: "You have very bad gut problems, I think it's time for you to see a GI."
Me: "Uh...yes, I've seen many. about 29387434 to be exact."
NP: "Oh, that's right, you're the one who went to the Mayo Clinic!"
NP: "My goodness. What are we going to do?"
Man oh man. I have to hand it to her - she's willing to try anything. She said to me, "I will do whatever it takes, so if you have any ideas, let me know." She even gave me Flagyl refills to self-treat with the drug when the guts get bad. Maybe that'll do the trick...although this time wasn't as successful as the last time. I've had diarrhea several days since going on it. I don't know. She again said she'd refer me to any top-notch infectious disease/travel doc in the lower 48 if I wanted to go there. What do you guys think? It hasn't been as bad as it used to be, but it's still not the greatest.
