I recently had a surgery consult with Dr. Helen Macrae at Mt. Sinai. Her schedule is packed, 4 months to get the referral and if I decided on surgery (NOT!) it was a least a 6 month wait and much longer times between take down's etc.
She was gentle while doing a scope but unfortunately she is an incredibly soft spoken woman. I had a very difficult time hearing her and was constantly asking her to repeat herself to no avail. Had surgery been an option for me I'd visit her a couple of times before making a decision. She may have good surgery skills but I'd want to understand what she's saying, especially if there are complications!
Incidentally, Mt. Sinai does prescribe IVIG for the treatment of IBD if that interests you.
Giving Entyvio a fair shot. 5 infusions so far. No change
UC/Crohns? - tested positive for MAP antibodies
PG- in remission.
Flaring for 2 years. -6/day, no b or m. urgency. SEVERE URGENCY. did I mention urgency?
