Question Going to the GI for the first time..

On October 1st I am going to the GI for the first time. What should I ask? I know that I should write down any questions I have but I don't have a clue what it will be like when I go! Any suggestions, tips, advice, questions, etc? Thank you.


Forgot to add I have a family history (my late grandmother) of colitis.

Dont be too worried, he does this day in, day out

He will ask you most of the questions about your symptoms, wouldnt hurt for you to have a think about this beforehand. Things like do the BMs keep u up at night, where is the pain, More diarreah or more Constipation, stress, diet..stuff like that.

Definately mention anything like youre family history though, or anything you have noticed during your suffering.

Good luck
