How many people have gone for a consult with a 2nd gastro? I have been with mine since I was diagnosed seven years ago, but i feel like I may have more options going into a city Hospital (Boston) like Mass General. I figure it wouldnt hurt to see what else is out there and if they have any other suggestions...esp after I have developed drug indused lupus from Remicade and have no clue what I am going to have to try next!
On a related note....I asked my doctors to send copies of my records to mass general, signed the release form...and then today received them in the mail...I wonder if they ever got faxed or if they expect me to do it???
