Good deal- I feel the same way about my GI- that we're a team! Even though we don't always disagree on treatment options (he thinks surgery is the way to go, I'm a med holdout), he's willing to work with me. plus he never gets mad when I do things like put myself on pred, or something along those lines. Now if the scope shows active disease, will you up your remi dose, try Humira, or talk to a surgeon? I guess, how bad is bad, for your colon? well sounds like a good visit- when you respect your doctor & he/she respects you, it does make the whole surgery issue a little easier to deal with, I think. You sound like me right now- still have "bad" days, very close to accidents in public, etc. And still plugging away with the Remicade!
