Well, I did it. I dumped my GI and I"ve gotten another. I told her my Celiac blood test...and she finished the sentence "was negative. They almost always are." The upper and lower GI's cannot show celiac or most polyps. I was told by the idiot GI dr that the upper and lower GI's would show that. AND the idiot GI dr. also did NOT know what the Atkins Diet was! Can you believe that. Anyway, I have a new GI dr who will do a complete colonoscopy while I'm SEDATED!! My appointment to see him is the day after my birthday...happy birthday to me...happy birthday to mee...anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone when I wrote a few weeks ago "Frustrated." Many of you validated me and told me to get to a new dr. It's awful that we've become a society that thinks because a dr. says something that it's gospel, when in reality, they are only human and have opinions like everyone else. I think they need to be knocked off their pedestel. We know our bodies better than anyone and we should remember that. IBS has gotten a bad rap. If dr.'s would start treating us as patients that have physical problems instead of hypochondriacs, we would be much better off! Thanks again everyone!
