Hi Everyone,
 
I have finally came to the conclusion that my current GI doc is a moron.  So, I am looking for a new one.  If anyone can recommend one in Oklahoma, that would be great!
 
Thanks!

Hi Lori,

I am in Western Oklahoma.  I am looking for a GI around OKC.  I may try one in Norman that a guy my husband works with said really helped his mother find meds that worked.  That doc is in Norman.  I would like to have someone's experience who has seen the GI themselves, though. 

I was diagnosed with proctitis about six years ago, but I am thinking it has spread into the left side because of some mild discomfort/cramp in the area from time to time and because of a worsening in symptoms.

Of course, I don't know for sure because I haven't had a colonoscopy since diagnosed because of insurance and GI drama.  Anyway, I have had a very hard time finding something that gives me 100% remission. 

I am currently taking 3 Lialda tablets and one Canasa at night.  I am 90% there, but I still have some blood/mucous daily.

I have been on the steroids before, but I just can't stand the side effects.  Besides, they didn't help.  So, I am thinking when I do finally find a good GI, he/she might suggest immuno drugs, which kind of scares me.  Mainly because I don't have children yet, and I have read many things coming from people in both camps regarding whether to use them during pregnancy or not.

Anyway, I noticed that you are on azathioprine.  How has it been so far? 

Thanks!
