Two appointments down, one to go. What a busy week. Did I tell you I HATE seeing doctors? Especially when I know that they are having trouble figuring out how to help me?
The GI doc I saw yesterday would like to stop my pain meds. Hello? What did you say? I’ve been living in pain since 1992 and just finally was given pain meds for the hell I live in this past January after having been sick with a non relenting Crohns flare for a whole year prior to seeing the pain do, and I’m starting to function a bit better, and you what? want me to stop taking the pain meds?
Sure. Sure I will, but only if you’re going to pay my mortgage and house bills etc because I won’t be able to even sit up at the computer as I’m doing now without them. Yeah sure.
Yep that was pretty much the outcome of my latest GI appointment. He didn’t want to start me on any new Crohns meds, in fact he doesn’t think the Pentasa is doing anything for me either so why not stop that too.
I’ve been in a two year flare and he’s putting me back to square one without anything to help me get better? I was hoping he’d put me on another type of medication for Crohns to try to nip this in the bud so to speak and get me back to work. GEEZ.
I’m so frustrate.
Oh yeah … I can become a totally digital person by swallowing a camera pill to find out what’s going on inside my small bowel. Unfortunately our Insurance doesn’t pay for the $1200 or so test. I’m going to do it, but I have no idea how I’m going to pay for it.
Grrrr! I just wish a magic fairy would come by and tap me with her wand and fix this flare.
