So the last time I went in for a dr.s visit my GI said that he'd help me out on the IBS side of things with Lomotil or Bentyl. I said that would be great, but he never prescribed it to me. So today while I was at my infusion center getting my Remicade... my nurse called and told them to call me in a prescription for Lomotil...but she used the word Flare up. I didn't think I'd have any problems getting it since we had already talked about it.
So then his nurse wants to see me, takes me into a room, and tells me he wont be prescribing me the Lomotil because he is reluctant on prescribing that... I asked why and she didn't have an answer... like WHY NOT? I was already on an anti spasmodic for my IBS, but it didn't help.. it was called Hyomex. So then she further says that he thinks that because I JUST got my Remicade today that I should wait to see if it helps. I tried to explain that it ISN'T my UC that's upsetting me..it's IBS! Whenever I get nervous or stressed out I have to go to the bathroom more. Well she says.. call back on thursday or friday if you're not feeling better. I'm like YOU GUYS ARE SO STUPID! Why is it so hard for you to listen and understand what I'm telling you I need?
