While I was diagnosed a decade ago, this is really my first time dealing with significant symptoms. I guess I've been shamefully naive to a UC diagnosis. I also never landed a GI doctor that I've built a relationship with. It's been one doctor after another, leaving practices, and getting bounced around.
I'm hopeful that moving to the Mass General Crohns and Colitis dept. helps. There are few doctors over there who's background in research and teaching seem promising.
