Sorry...have to vent.
I was in the ER last week due to some blood dripping from my anus. The surgeon said my complications are characteristic to Crohn's and to go see my GI. She even discouraged me from seeking any of her offices services by telling me that I don't want to see a surgeon. Surgeons are bad news. I also had met two other surgeons from the same office. One accused my surgeon (surgery was done in another state) of not taking responsibility for my recovery as I had complications when in fact it was just bad communication on their part! Also another surgeon said the least likely thing to have caused my 2nd abscess would be a fistula...well surprisingly they did a fistula study and found one! Go figure!!
Unfortunately this is a hospital 2 miles from me so when complication comes that's the only place I can get too. It's nice having good insurance to get surgery done where you want but dealing with a bunch of surgeons who apparently don't want to deal with you because you were not originally their patient is very irritating.
My surgeon has just retired so no chanced getting him again plus a three/four hour drive when your tushy huts is no fun. A closer option for me would be John Hopkins in MD. Has anyone had any experienced with these surgeons? I got another fistula and may need surgery again!
