So I went today to get a new prescript
ion for enemas. My own doctor wasn't there so receptionist prepared the prescript
ion and when she brought it to the other doctor to sign, she came back and said that this other doctor wants me to have a colonoscopy soon. She explained, that since I've been using enemas for six months now "there must be something wrong". I said fine yeah will have a conoloscopy, but my own doctor told me to use the enemas at my own pace. This other doctor then came out of herroom and told me, "these enemas are short term solutions, if you use them for too long they will break your colon.How old are you?" to which I replied , 35 and she said "well I'm sure you want to live to be 100, wont happen with these (Salofalk enemas), you might need another medication" then she asked the receptionist about
my last calprotectin levels. The calprotectin from december was 115. Then this doctor said "see? they are a bit high, think about
the colonoscopy" and then she left. Obviously, I asked the receptionist for an appointment with my own doctor.
This left me very...anxious. I'm glad though that I'm not somebody who has just been diagnosed. I've had this for 20 years and I am a bit more immune to bad doctors. I mean she basically told me "do you want to die?" 10 years ago this encounter would have been enough to send me into a flare.
Just had tor rant a little here!
Anyways, got my hands on 21 new enemas
