We live in British Columbia, Canada, in a remote area and every time we have to see a specialist we travel 700km. But that is not the biggest issue. It seems the GI we are seeing (both my son, 19, and I have UC) is not responding well to our concerns/questions. He is convinced the only option for my son is biologics. My son is extremely anxious about taking those and is refusing to take any form of mesalamine because he feels it is making him feel worse and the doctor does not beleive him. (I know, he is not easy, either). I feel we have to see another specialist and am trying to find out who is the best in our province or if there is a clinic specializing in IBD. I did Google it and am not sure if I can trust the result. If anybody is familiar with the situation in BC, can you, please, share. Or, even, another province, I am desperate. I suspect my son has IBS on top of UC and nobody is even trying to treat that.
Thank you all.
