thanks. I went back to my primary care doctor yesterday to ask her about a test someone suggested on this board (colonic transit test) and she actually told me no such test existed! I knew it did and explained it to her. She wouldn't do it. Gave me a bottle of lactulose and some anxiety meds and sent me off. Said she could get me in with another GI specialist towards the END OF THE MONTH! I was hurting so bad this morning I could barely breathe.
I live in Alabama, so the closest Mayo Clinic is in Jacksonville. We have UAB here, which is supposed to be great....but my primary doc is a UAB Professor!!!! My mother had suggested Mayo before, but my current insurance will not cover it (I've already checked). I will have new insurance in January.
I wanted so badly to be feeling better by the holidays. Last year I didn't even get to celebrate Christmas...no tree..nothing. I never imagined that almost a year later I would still be in such distress. I am going to meet with some ministers Tuesday for healing prayer. I have just about had it with doctors. All they have done is make me feel worse.
