Well, since I started taking the prescibed amount on my colalzal, I'm almost out of my flare. I tried to get an appt to see my GI, since it's been over a yr, and his new nurse told me no openings till the end of June, I said ok, but I need RX refill. I was told she'd have to ask the doc. 15 min later, he calls me up, personally, and tell me come in on 4/24. (I called his office on 4/23), he told me he has a new nurse and she was not aware that when I call for an appt his office makes room for me due to my job. I drive a truck over the road. After seeing him and telling him about me not taking the full amount of meds due to insurance and streaching my meds to last, and telling him that I'm about 90% back to remission, he smiled and said I should call him if there is any issue with not being able to pay for my meds. He said he will always make sure I have meds no matter what. I then asked him if I could get a RX for some Rowasa(generic) since I feel that it will help me get to remission quicker, he said no problem. I then asked him where my Colitit was, since I never botherd to ask before, and found that I had left sided colitis. I love my GI, and that's why I drive the 80 miles to see him. He takes very good care of me, he takes time to talk to me about treatment and really cares about not only me, but all his patiants. I just wanted to share with someone about my visit to my GI. Have a good day everyone.
