Should I bother seeing a new doc?
I saw a dr over a year ago who "diagnosed" my condition as IBS. I had a flex sig and he was satisfied that I didn't have any diseases, and told me just to deal with it. Don't we love doctors?
Anyway, I have C type IBS and I did not have a bm all through the month of december. I tried lots of water, fiber therapy (which I have been doing since this diagnosis over a year ago) and I finally resorted to enemas, which didn't produce anything mentionable. Like I said in another post, I was able to go once I got my period at the end of the month.
I'm just wondering, is it worth it to try to explain all of this if I go to a new doctor, or should I just continue doing fiber therapy and trying to control my diet more? I know these GI's are given such a bad rep...they seem to brush off this condition and I can't decide if it's worth the $15 copay and possible drugs that don't work...
