I currently have 3 GI's "working together" I had all my records transfered and the film from my colonoscoy copyed from when i was first diagnosed and in the hospitital. It was great becuase now i have it for my records as well. ( i just signed a formed and they handed them over and i made copys) It is hard to have that many doctors but I need it since i go away to school, and then one and home, and then a specialist who I like alot and is very respected in the field (he is the one that i generally call, but becuase he is so far away its impractical to have him be my only Doc.) So it is nice becuase i can talk with all of them about my diffrent options and medications. I would suggest getting a 2nd opinion, what can it hurt?! They didn't need to do a colonoscopy becuase they had the film. Although I did have one of my Docs say that if i would have come to him when i was first diagnosed and he say a colon like that, that he would have remove it right then! So i'm glad that didn't happen... its always good to hear what others have to say especially if you are not happy!
