Re: need some advice on crohns

My son has Crohn's-colitis, but has never had surgery for it before. He is in remission now. If you have concerns or doubts about your doctor, I'd suggest you seek a 2nd opinion -if anything just to give you peace of mind, but also for another specialist to review your results. I'd definitely find a GI who specializes in IBD for the 2nd opinion. We have two GI's for my son, a local GI who we know & trust & who's seen our son for yrs now, but also a GI specialist 2 hrs away at a research hospital who we see far less often, but who keeps tabs on our son's condition (records are sent to him from our local doc).
