Wow, I'm so sorry to hear how you have been treated. Can you maybe call the Gi that you are to see next week and see if they can see you NOW? If you explain just how bad your symptoms are, maybe they can. Also, be sure to tell the GI how horrid the local docs are, and ask what he can do to help you manage from a distance. Maybe he will be willing to call in prescript
ions over the phone, etc, if you are really sick and unable to get to his office.
