hey elle -
kudos for starting SCD - it' s not an easy task - try to stay with it as long as you're seeing positive results -
"if the doc prescribes me drugs, do I have to take them" that would be a big NO !
Can I tell her which drugs I want to take only? Can I tell her that I want to try the diet method first and if that doesn't work I will try some meds?" yes & yes
when was your last cscope ? what about
rectal meds - are you using them ?
