Sherry - I am so sorry your Grandma is sick, and you had to clean all that stuff up. It's so difficult watching somone go through that.
I would probably phone primary and make appt w/GI. That way the primary is kept informed. My Doc's are really good about
cc'ing eachother and both ask me how I am doing w/my other problem, my GI always asks how things are going w/my kidneys and my Kidney Doc always asks how my colon is and they always cc my primary (don't know what she actually does or if she even reads it, but the info goes into my file). I am really begining to like my GI, I feel he is really keeping on top of everything and he is good about
ret. phone calls and making appts.
