... Just an update. I am going in for my colonoscopy on Tuesday! I dread the prep the worst and the fact that my dr is young. Kind of puts me at a disadvantage to have to sit across from him later for the results. He signed me up for a clinical study of his and I had to do blood tests . I get those results back later. I am having an endoscopic also looking for reasons for my... (11 replies)

... I got my appt for Aug 11th. It's a follow-up appt to discuss my colonoscopy and my problems I've been having. Last yr I had some tests and the radiologist had recomendended a CT to determine if it was Crhons or if something was kinking up in my abdomen but the dr I was seeing decided not to. I hope that wasn't a mistake. This dr will be a lot more active in my care. When I saw... (11 replies)
... Thanks, My daughter's ultrasound didn't go well but a call to her Nephrology dr helped to calm me down a little. Her kidney is still enlarged{hydroneprosis} even though she had surgery in May, so I was upset to say the least.He called me back from his cell phone on his vacation time, another friend of my BILs , and he is going to see her after her renal lasix test which isn't...

I don't know how healthy that is, but as long as we get to our problems, and are actively getting the help we need, how dysfunctional can it REALLY be to use others' problems to take our mind off our own? Especially if it helps you too! Best of luck.... (11 replies)
... I caled for an appt this morning. My dr doesn't have any appts, I have to call back in a couple of days.

I know better but I am overwhelmed with mostly my daughter's health, she is still not outt of the woods yet, her brain defect makes... (11 replies)

... Bhuneke: I'm so sorry to learn of your difficulties. Sounds like we are right on though... make sure you get in ASAP. And yes, it is VERY SAD that it seems as though none of these doctors care.

I told my husband that's why I have to go to TX, we live in Va. The drs here... (11 replies)
