Hi,
Health Talk will be putting on another Webcast on July 28 about the following topic.  I know that I was told UC, then changed to Indeterminate UC/CD, then back to UC. So this should be interesting:
"Diagnosing Colitis, Crohn’s and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are so similar that misdiagnoses and incorrect treatment occur all too often. How sure are you of your diagnosis?

Tune in July 28 as top gastroenterologists discuss the symptoms unique to each of these bowel diseases, the best tests to accurately diagnose your condition and why a correct diagnosis is so important for getting the right treatment. You’ll also find out which symptoms you should be sure to mention to your doctor and how to go about getting a second opinion and further testing if you’re not satisfied with your diagnosis.

And, as always, you'll have a chance to ask the experts your questions."
 
Cheers,
Mark

That sounds like something we should watch.  I'll probably forget though.  If you think of it, send us reminders the day before or the day of.  Thanks again, Bellski

Hi,

Sure we will try to remember to send a reminder. Also, you can add our blog to your RSS feeds, and we will for sure be posting a reminder of it on there when the time gets closer:

lol, I am not very good with computers, don't know what an rss feed is. Appreciate the info though. I'll write it down on the calendar too.

Oh, you've got to check out RSS feeds, they are awesome! I love the feature because you can keep all the sites you like in one spot, by simply clicking on the "orange RSS feed box" on that web page, here it is explained easily if you want:
