I’m so sorry you are going through this sassy!
You need to feel confident and well before your trip. It’s really good that you are having the colonoscopy soon at least.
I learned to phone the office (I think Tara is the person who gets the messages? ) and leave a detailed message ie “Hi, this is Sassy, I just wanted to leave a message to ask a question about
my symptoms. I’m getting eight or more bloody stools with mucus and feeling really ill at this time. I have to stay home to cope. I’m making sure to drink extra water so I don’t have dehydration but I would like to know what else the doctor thinks I can do about
this. I started using the enemas again with the hopes that this will help.”
I usually get a phone call back from Tara letting me know that she got my message and I should hear back soon. At first I would just phone and ask questions about
prednisone without going into detail and she was actually quite dismissive and rude to me, but when I started to leave the detailed alarming messages she took it seriously.
